Which one of the following is a diamagnetic ion?
Co+2 = [Ar] 3d7
Cu2+ = [Ar] 3d9
Mn+2 = [Ar] 3d5
Sc+3 = [Ar]
We can see that only Sc+3 has no unpaired electron, so it is a diamagnetic ion.
The elements which lie between s and p block elements in the long form periodic table are called as:
The inner transition elements are the elements in which the added electrons go to:
Lanthanides and actinides are called inner transition elements because they are a group of elements that are shown as the bottom two rows of the periodic table. Lanthanides and actinides belong to the f-block elements, which means that they have filled up their f-orbitals with electrons.
The second series of transition element starts with:
The second series includes the elements yttrium (symbol Y, atomic number 39) to cadmium(symbol Cd, atomic number 48).
Which form of silver is colourless?
ilver in the form of Ag+ is colourless. For transition metal ions to exhibit color, their metal ions must have incompletely filled (n-1)d orbitals.
Ag+ has completely filled d orbitals hence is colourless.
Which among the following is colourless?
Zn2+ has completely filled d-orbitals and there are no vacant d-orbitals for the transition of electrons, hence it is colourless.
Melting point of d block elements across a period:
Till d5 unpaired electron are increasing so maximum bonding as unpaired electron take part in bonding. So melting point increases till d5 then start decreasing due to pairing which decreases metallic bond strength and thus melting point.
Which of the following group of elements are not regarded as transition elements?
Zn, Cd & Hg because the d-orbital of these elements are completely filled. So, they don't show the characteristics of transition elements (i.e. the d-orbital of transition elements is incomplete.
The first ionization energy of the d-block elements are?
The first ionization energy of the d-block elements are between s and p-block elements. Thus they are more electropositive than p-block elements and less electropositive than s-block elements.
Which ion will show more paramagnetic behaviour ?
Since the configuration of Fe3+ ion is (argon ) 3d5,which contains maximum number of unpaired electrons, hence more will be paramagnetic behavior.
