QUESTION: 1

Solution:
QUESTION: 2

Solution:
QUESTION: 3

### How many elements are placed in lanthanide and actinide series?

Solution:

The same holds for the actinide series that runs from atomic number 90 through to number 103, again 14 elements. Thus, as you move from thorium (Th) at element number 90, you begin to fill up the 5f sublevel and continue to fill up the 5f sublevel until you finish the actinide series at lawrencium (Lr).

QUESTION: 4

Which of the following elements of noble gases participate in chemical reaction?

Solution:

Kr and Rn are the noble gases which participate in the chemical reactions.

QUESTION: 5

In the modern periodic table which are the metals among the first 10 elements?

Solution:
QUESTION: 6

Nitrogen and phosphorus belong to the group 15 of the periodic table. Which of these will be more electronegative?

Solution:

Nitrogen is smaller in size as compared to Phosphorus. Due to its small size, the net electron charge increases. Hence, its nucleus exerts greater force on the electrons. That is the reason why, Nitrogen is more electronegative element than Phosphorus.

Solution:
QUESTION: 17

Statement A : Electron affinity of fluorine is more than that of chlorine.
Statement B : Carbon monoxide is an acidic oxide.

Solution:

Carbon monoxide is usually treated as if it was a neutral oxide, but in fact it is very, very slightly acidic.E.A of fluorine is less than that of chlorine.

QUESTION: 18

Statement A : energy is always released when a neutral atoms gain an electron
Statement B Tellurium and polonium are semi metals

Solution:

Metalloids are chemical elements that display properties of both metals and nonmetals. Usually, the semimetals or metalloids are listed as boron, silicon, germanium, arsenic, antimony, tellurium, and polonium.

Solution:
QUESTION: 23

P, Q, R are elements of Dobereiner’s triads. If the atomic mass of P is 7 and that of Q is 23, What will be the atomic mass of R?

Solution:

(P+R)/2 = Q....(7+R)/2 = 23......7+R = 23×2.........R = 46 - 7 ........R = 39.0.
