Ans. Yes, Dobereiner’s triads also exist in the columns of Newlands’ Octaves. One such column is Li, K, Na.

**Q2. What were the limitations of Dobereiner’s classification?**

Ans.Limitation of Dobereiner’s classification: All known elements could not be classified into groups of triads on the basis of their properties.

**Q3. What were the limitations of Newlands’ Law of Octaves?**

Ans.Limitations of Newlands’ law of octaves:

- Those elements that were discovered after Newlands’ octaves did not follow the law of octaves.

- The position of cobalt and nickel in the group of the elements (F, Cl) of different properties could not be explained.

**Q1. Use Mendeleev’s Periodic Table to predict the formulae for the oxides of the following elements:**

**K, C, Al, Si, Ba.**

Ans. K is in group 1. Therefore, the oxide will be K_{2}O.

C is in group 4. Therefore, the oxide will be CO_{2}.

Al is in group 3. Therefore, the oxide will be Al_{2}O_{3}.

Si is in group 4. Therefore, the oxide will be SiO_{2}.

Ba is in group 2. Therefore, the oxide will be BaO.

**Q2. Besides gallium, which other elements have since been discovered that were left by Mendeleev in his Periodic Table? (any two)**

Ans.Scandium and germanium.

**Q3. What were the criteria used by Mendeleev in creating his Periodic Table?**

Ans. Mendeleev used atomic mass of the elements as the unique criteria of the elements. He proposed that the chemical properties of elements are the periodic function of their atomic masses. And thus, he arranged the elements in the increasing order of their atomic masses.

**Q4. Why do you think the noble gases are placed in a separate group?**

Ans. Noble gases are inert elements. Their properties are different from all other elements. Therefore, the noble gases are placed in a separate group.

**Page No: 90**

**Q1. How could the Modern Periodic Table remove various anomalies of Mendeleev’s Periodic Table?**

Ans. Various anomalies of Mendeleev’s Periodic Table removed as follows in the Modern Periodic Table:

- Elements are arranged in the increasing order of their atomic number in the Modern Periodic Table, thus there was no need for keeping more than one element in one slot.

- In the Modern Periodic Table, there was no problem of the place of isotopes, as isotopes have the same atomic mass with different atomic numbers.

- Elements having the same valence electron are kept in same group.

- Elements having same number of shells were put under the same period.

- Position of hydrogen became clarified in as it is kept in the group with the elements of the same valence electrons.

**Q2. Name two elements you would expect to show chemical reactions similar to magnesium. What is the basis for your choice?**

Ans. Calcium (Ca) and strontium (Sr) are expected to show chemical reactions similar to magnesium (Mg). This is because the number of valence electrons (2) is same in all these three elements and since chemical properties are due to valence electrons, they show the same chemical reactions.

**Q3. Name ****(a) three elements that have a single electron in their outermost shells.**

**(b) two elements that have two electrons in their outermost shells.**

**(c) three elements with filled outermost shells.**

Ans.(a) Lithium (Li), sodium (Na), and potassium (K) have a single electron in their outermost shells.

(b) Magnesium (Mg) and calcium (Ca) have two electrons in their outermost shells.

(c) Neon (Ne), argon (Ar), and xenon (Xe) have filled outermost shells.

**Q4. (a) Lithium, sodium, potassium are all metals that react with water to liberate hydrogen gas. Is there any similarity in the atoms of these elements?**

**(b) Helium is an unreactive gas and neon is a gas of extremely low reactivity. What, if anything, do their atoms have in common?**

Ans.(a) Yes. The atoms of all the three elements lithium, sodium, and potassium have one electron in their outermost shells.

(b) Both helium (He) and neon (Ne) have filled outermost shells. Helium has a duplet in its K shell, while neon has an octet in its L shell.

**5. In the Modern Periodic Table, which are the metals among the first ten elements?**

Ans. Among the first ten elements, lithium (Li) and beryllium (Be) are metals.

**6. By considering their position in the Periodic Table, which one of the following elements would you expect to have maximum metallic characteristics?**

Ans. Since Be, lies to the extreme left-hand side of the periodic table, Be is the most metallic among the given elements.

**(e) twice as many electrons in its second shell as in its first shell?**

Ans.

(a) Neon

(b) Magnesium

(c) Silicon

(d) Boron

(e) Carbon

**Q4. (a) What property do all elements in the same column of the Periodic Table as boron have in common?**

**(b) What property do all elements in the same column of the Periodic Table as fluorine have in common?**

Ans.

**Q6. The position of three elements A, B and C in the Periodic Table are shown below –**

**(a) State whether A is a metal or non-metal.**

**(b) State whether C is more reactive or less reactive than A.**

**(c) Will C be larger or smaller in size than B?**

**(d) Which type of ion, cation or anion, will be formed by element A?**

Ans.

(a) A is a non-metal.

(b) C is less reactive than A, as reactivity decreases down the group in halogens.

(c) C will be smaller in size than B as moving across a period, the nuclear charge increases and therefore, electrons come closer to the nucleus.

(d) A will form an anion as it accepts an electron to complete its octet.

**Q7. Nitrogen (atomic number 7) and phosphorus (atomic number 15) belong to group 15 of the Periodic Table. Write the electronic configuration of these two elements. Which of these will be more electronegative? Why?**

Ans.

Nitrogen (7): 2, 5

Phosphorus (15): 2, 8, 5

Since electronegativity decreases with moving from top to bottom in a group, thus Nitrogen will be more electronegative.

**Q8. How does the electronic configuration of an atom relate to its position in the Modern Periodic Table?**

Ans.

In the modern periodic table, atoms with similar electronic configurations are placed in the same column. In a group, the number of valence electrons remains the same.

Elements across a period show an increase in the number of valence electrons.

**Q9. In the Modern Periodic Table, calcium (atomic number 20) is surrounded by elements with atomic numbers 12, 19, 21, and 38. Which of these have physical and chemical properties resembling calcium?**

**Ans.**

The element with atomic number 12 has same chemical properties as that of calcium. This is because both of them have the same number of valence electrons (2).

**Q10. Compare and contrast the arrangement of elements in Mendeleev’s Periodic Table and the Modern Periodic Table.**

Ans.

Mendeleev’s Periodic Table | Modern Periodic Table |

Elements are arranged in increasing order of their atomic masses | Elements are arranged in increasing order of their atomic number |

There are 8 groups | There are 18 groups |

Each group is divided in subgroups (a) and (b) | Groups are not divided in subgroups |

Group for noble gas is not present as noble gases were not discovered by that time | A separate group is meant foe noble gases |

There was no place for isotopes | Rectified as slots are determined according to the atomic number. |
