Detailed Solution for 31 Year NEET Previous Year Questions: The d & f-Block Elements - 1 - Question 4

The basic character of the transition metal monoxide is TiO > VO > CrO > FeO because basic character of oxides decrease with increase in atomic number. Oxides of transitional metals in low oxidation state i.e., + 2 and + 3 are generally basic except Cr2O3.

31 Year NEET Previous Year Questions: The d & f-Block Elements - 1 - Question 10

The main reason for larger number of oxidation states exhibited by the actinoids than the corresponding lanthanoids, is [2005, 2006]

Detailed Solution for 31 Year NEET Previous Year Questions: The d & f-Block Elements - 1 - Question 10

The cause of showing different oxidation is due to the fact that there is only a small difference between the energies of electron in the ns orbitals and (n – 1)d orbitals with the result both ns as well (n – 1)d electrons can be used for compound formation. Lesser energy difference between 5f and 6d orbitals than between 4f and 5d orbitals result in larger no. of oxidation state.

31 Year NEET Previous Year Questions: The d & f-Block Elements - 1 - Question 14

Which of the following oxidation states are the most characteristic for lead and tin respectively?

Detailed Solution for 31 Year NEET Previous Year Questions: The d & f-Block Elements - 1 - Question 14

All the group IV elements show tetravalency which can be explained on the basis of shifting of one eof ns to the vacant np orbital.These four orbitals give rise to four sp3 hybrid orbitals.
When ns2 electrons of the outermost shell do not participate in bonding it is called inert pair and the effect is called inert pair effect. The last three elements of group 4 i.e. Ge, Sn and Pb, have a tendency to form divalent as well as tetravalent ions. Since the inert pair effect increases from Ge to Pb, the stability of tetravalent ion decreases and that of divalent ion increases that is why Pb++ is more stable than Pb4+ and Sn4+ ions is more stable than Sn2+.

31 Year NEET Previous Year Questions: The d & f-Block Elements - 1 - Question 15

31 Year NEET Previous Year Questions: The d & f-Block Elements - 1 - Question 16

Identify the incorrect statement among the following: [2007]

Detailed Solution for 31 Year NEET Previous Year Questions: The d & f-Block Elements - 1 - Question 16

There is a steady decrease in the radii as the atomic number of the lanthanide elements increases. For every additional proton added in nucleus the corresponding electron goes to 4f subshell.
The shape of f -orbitals is very much diffused and they have poor shielding effect. The effective nuclear charge increases which causes the contraction in the size of electron charge cloud. This contraction in size is quite regular and known as Lanthanoid contraction.
Since the change in the ionic radii in the lanthanide series is very small, thus their chemical properties are similar.

31 Year NEET Previous Year Questions: The d & f-Block Elements - 1 - Question 17

The correctorder of decreasing second ionisation enthalpy of Ti (22), V(23), Cr(24) and Mn (25) is : [2008]

Detailed Solution for 31 Year NEET Previous Year Questions: The d & f-Block Elements - 1 - Question 17

Ti ; Z (22) is 1s22s22p63s23p64s23d2
V ; Z (23) is 1s22s22p63s23p64s23d3
Cr ; Z (24) is 1s22s22p63s23p63d54s1
Mn ; Z (25) is 1s22s22p63s23d54s2

 The second electron in all the cases (except Cr) is taken out from 4s-orbital and for Cr it is an electron from completely half filled 3d-orbital. The force required for removal of second electron will be more for Mn (except for Cr) having more positive charge.
Based on this we find the correct order is Mn > V > Ti.  Cr > Mn > V > Ti. So correct answeris (a).

Which of the following pairs has the same size?

Detailed Solution for 31 Year NEET Previous Year Questions: The d & f-Block Elements - 1 - Question 22

In general, the atomic and ionic radii increases on moving down a group. But the elements of second transition series (eg, Zr, Nb, Mo etc) have the almost same radii as the elements of third transition series (eg Hf, Ta, W etc.) This is because of lanthanide contraction i.e imperfect shielding of one 4f- electron by another.
