CLASSIFICATION OF ELEMENTS - THE PERIODIC TABLE

  Important Questions

1. (a) Give reason whether the following group is a Dobereiner's traid or not. Na, Si, Cl (Atomic weights of Na, Si, Cl are 23, 28, 35.5 respectively)
(b) What is the atomic weight of Se? If S, Se, Te are Dobereiner's traid
(Atomic weight of S and Te are 32, 125)                                                                      (AS 1) 4 Marks
A: a) Na(23), Si(28), Cl(35.5). It is not a Doberiner's traid because the atomic weight of middle element (Si (28)) is not equal to the average of atomic weights of Na(23) and Cl(35.5).

2. Define the Mendeleev's periodic law. Explain the salient feature and achievements of the Mendeleev's periodic table?                                                                               (AS 1) 4 Marks
A: Mendeleev's periodic law:
"The law states that the physical and chemical properties of the elements are a periodic function of their atomic weights".

Salient features and achievements of the Mendeleev's periodic table:
1. Groups and Sub - groups:
There are eight vertical columns called groups represented by Roman numerals I to VIII. Each group is divided into two Sub - groups A and B. The elements present in a group and its Sub - group have similar properties.
2. Periods:
The Horizontal rows in Mendeleev's table are called periods. There are seven periods in the table. Which are denoted by Arabic numeral 1 to 7. A period comprises the entire range of elements after which properties repeat themselves.
3. Predicting the properties of missing elements:
Based on the arrangement of the elements in the table. He predicted that some elements were missing and left blank spaces at the appropriate places in the table. He named those elements tentatively by adding the prefix eka to the name of the element immediately above the each empty space.
e.g.: Eka - boron, Eka - aluminium, Eka - Sillion were close to the observed properties of Scandium, Gallium and Germanium respectively which were discovered later.

4. Correction of atomic weight:
The correct placement of elements in Mendeleev's periodic table helped in correction the atomic masses of some elements like Beryllium, Indium, Gold.
5. Anomalous Series:
Some anomalous series of elements like 'Te' and 'I' were observed in the table. The anomalous series contained elements with more atomic weight like (Te) placed before the element with less atomic weight like I.

3. What are the salient features of Modern periodic table?
                                                                                    or
Explain the features of long form of periodic table based on the law "The physical and chemical properties of elements are the periodic function of the electronic configuration of their atoms" mention its special features.    (AS 1) 4 Marks
A: Modern periodic law:
The properties of the elements are periodic function of their atomic numbers construction of the long form periodic  table.

Special features of modern periodic table:
‣ The modern periodic table has eighteen vertical columns known as groups and seven horizontal rows known as periods.
‣  The elements with similar outer shell (valence shell) electronic configurations in their atoms are in the same column called group. They are represented by using Roman numeral I through VIII with letters A and B traditional notation. According to latest recommendation of the IUPAC. These groups are represented by Arabic numerals 1 through 18.
‣ Depending upon to which sub - shell that differentiating electron i.e, the last coming electron enters in the atom of the given element, the elements are classified as s, p, d and f block elements.
‣  The number of elements in period depend on how electrons are filled into various shells. Each period starts with a new shell and ends when shell is completely filled.
‣  The first period starts with K - shell which contains only one sub shell 1s. So first period has only two elements (H, He).
‣  Second period starts with the second main shell (L) which contains two sub - shells (2s, 2p). Eight types of configurations are possible in this shell (L) like 2s1 and 2s2 and 2p1 to 2p6. Hence the second period contains elements Li, Be, B, C, N, O, F and Ne in the order given thus, the 2nd period consists two s - block elements (Li, Be) and six p - block elements (B to Ne).
‣  Third period starts with third main shell (M). This shell (M) has 3 sub - shells namely 3s, 3p and 3d but while electrons are being filled into the shell '3d' gets electrons only after '4s' is filled. Therefore, the 3rd period containing again 8 elements, which includes two s - block elements (Na, Mg) and six p - block elements (Al to Ar).
‣  Fourth main shell (N) has four sub-shells (4s, 4p, 4d, 4f) but the electrons enter the atoms in the order 4s, 3d and 4p. So, 18 elements can be filled in this period.
‣  On the same lives, 18 elements are in the 5th period.
‣  7th period is in complete and contains 2 elements from s - block (7s), 14 elements from f - block (5f), 10 elements from d - block (6d) and some elements from p - block (7p).
‣  The 4f elements are called lanthanides and 5f elements are called actinides, which are separately place at the bottom of the periodic table.

4. How do atomic radius, Inoization energy, Electron affinity, Electronegativity, Metallic and Non - metallic properties. Vary in a period and in a group?                                        (AS 1) 4 Marks
A: a) Atomic radius:
In periods: 
Atomic radius decreases from left to right in a period.
In groups: Atomic radius increase from top to bottom in a group.
b) Ionization energy:
In periods: 
Ionization energy does not follow a regular trend but totally increases due to increase in atomic number. When we move from left to right in a period.
In groups: Ionization energy decreases due to increase in atomic size when we move from top to bottom in a group.
c) Electron affinity:
In periods: 
Electron affinity values increases from left to right in a period.
In groups: Electron affinity decreases from top to bottom in a group.
d) Electronegativity:
In periods: 
Electronegativity increases from left to right in a period.
In groups: Electronegativity values decreases from top to bottom in a group.
e) Metallic and non - metallic properties:
In periods: 
Metallic character decreases, while non - metallic character increases as we move along a period from left
to right.
In groups: Metallic character increases, while non - metallic character decreases in a group as we move from top to bottom.

5. Mention and Explain the factors of influencing Ionization energy.
                                                                           OR
Explain different factors which influence the Ionization energy.                              (AS 1) 4 Marks
A: Factors effect the Ionization energy:
i) Nuclear charge: 
More the nuclear charge more is the ionization energy.
e.g.: Between 11Na and 17Cl, Chlorine atom has more ionization energy.
ii) Screening effect or shielding effect:
More the shells with electrons between the nucleus and the valence shell, they act as screens and decrease nuclear attraction over valence electron. This is called the screening effect. More the screening effect, less is the ionization energy.
e.g.: Between 3Li and 55Cs, the element 55Cs with more inner shells has less ionization energy.
iii) Penetration power of the orbitals:
Orbitals belonging to the same main shell have different piercing power towards the nucleus, for example 4s > 4p > 4d > 4f in the penetration. Therefore, it is easier to remove 4f electron than 4s.
iv) Stable configuration: It is easier to remove one electron from 8O (1s2 2s2 2p4) than 7N (1s2 2s2 2p3). This is because, 7N has stable half filled configuration.
v) Atomic radius: More the atomic radius, less is the ionization energy. Therefore, ionization energy of 'F' is greater than that of 'I'.

                                                                                                                           (AS 1) (AS 4) 4 Marks
i) If in 2nd and 3rd periods from left to right what will be the change in Atomic Size? Support your answer.

A: The Atomic size when we go from left to right in the table decreases. It is because that in a period when we go from left to right atomic number increases. The incoming electron enters into the same shell, the nuclear attraction increases on outermost orbital electrons. Hence atomic size decreases.

ii) In a period from left to right, how does the metallic character of elements vary?
A: 
When we go from left to right in the above table the metallic character decreases and non - metallic character of element increases. In period the first two or three metals are as metals. Next one or two elements are like semi metals and the last three elements are like non - metals. Due to this metallic character decreases and non-metallic character increases in period.
