Transition Elements:

Definition: They are often called "transition elements" because their position in the periodic table is between s-block and p-block elements.

Typically, the transition elements have an incompletely filled d-level. Since Zn group has d10 configuration and are not considered as transition elements but they are d-block elements.

General Characteristics:

(i) Metallic character: They are all metals and good conductors of heat & electricity.

(ii) Electronic configuration: (n – 1)d1– 10ns1–2

Ques: In laboratory K2Cr2O7 is used mainly not Na2Cr2O7. Why?

Ans: Na2Cr2O7 is deliquescent enough and changes its concentration and cannot be taken as primary standard solution whereas K2Cr2O7 has no water of crystallisation and is not deliquescent.

Ques: How to standardise Na2S2O3 solution in iodometry?

Ans: K2Cr2O7 is the primary standard ⇒ strength is known by weighing the salt in chemical balance and dissolving in measured amount of water.

Then in acidic solution, add KI

Cr2O72-  + 14 H+ + 6I- → 2Cr3+ + 3I2  + 7H2O

This I2 is liberated can be estimated with S2O32-.
