**Q2.What are the limitations of J.J.Thompson’s model of the atom ?**

Ans. According to J.J Thomson’s atomic model electrons are embedded on the positive charge but later it was found that electrons revolves around the nucleus and positive charge protons resides in the nucleus of the atom.

**Q3.What are the limitations of Rutherford’s model of the atom ?**

Ans.According to Rutherford,s model of the atom, the electrons revolves around the nucleus in fixed and circular orbital where it will be accelerated continuously ,it will loss energy in the form of radiations as electron is a charged particle as a result ultimately will collapse at the nucleus and atom will be finished,while atom is a stabilized particle.

**Q4.Describe Bohr’s model of the atom.**

Ans. According to Bohr’s model, all the electrons revolve in discrete orbitals, the electrons filled up in these orbits as per rule 2n^{2}, where n is the number of orbitals. He named these orbitals, first orbital, K, second orbital, L, third orbital, M, and so on.., the number of electrons in these orbitals are fixed. These are discrete orbitals where electrons revolve but do not radiate their energy.

**Q5.Compare all the proposed models of an atom given in this chapter.**

J.J.Thompson’s Atomic Model | Ruthurford’s Atomic Model | Neils Bohr’s Atomic Model |

J.J.Thomson compared the atom with watermelon,according to him atom is spherical in shape and electrons are embedded on the surface of atom just like seeds on the watermelon,these electrons constitute negative charge and edible part as the positive charge,the whole of the atom is neutral. | According to Rutherford’s atomic model, the negatively charged electrons revolves around the nucleus in fixed orbits and positve charge is concentrated at the centre of atom.The number of positive charge is equal to the number of negative charge,so atom is neutral. | Neils Bohr’s followed Ruderford’s atomic model and fulfills the deficiency in Rutherford’ atomic model .According to him the negatively charged electrons revolves around the nucleus in descreet orbitals. In these orbitals electrons do not radiate energy and didtributed in the form of 2n.He named these orbitals K,L,M…etc. |

**Q6.Summarise the rules for writing of distribution of electrons in various shells for the first eighteen elements.**

Ans-The electrons accommodate in the shells of atom as per the rule 2n^{2}(n=1,2,3,4,5….),where n is the number of orbitals or energy levels ,electrons are filled up in the orbitals in stepwise ways. Outer shell is not occupied by the electrons unless inner orbital is filled. The electrons are filled in first, second, third orbital…..and so on as per following ways.

First orbital→n=1, 2n^{2} = 2 ×1^{2} = 2

Second orbital→n=2, 2n^{2} =2 × 2^{2}= 8

Third orbital→n=3, 2n^{2} = 2 ×3^{2}= 18

On the same way other orbitals also filled.

**Q7.Define valency by taking examples of silicon and oxygen.**

Ans.Valency- The tendency of atoms of an element to make an octet in its outermost orbit and transaction of electrons in making this octet is known as valency of the element. The valency of an element is decided by the electrons available in the outermost orbit known as valence electrons,if the valence electrons are more than 4 then valency is calculated by subtracting these from 8 and if valence electrons are less than 4 or equal to 4 then the valency will be the same as the valence electrons.

As an example, silicon(Si) has the atomic number of 14, so in its outermost orbit, there will be 4 electrons, so its valency will be 4.

Oxygen has the atomic number of 8, so its valence electrons are 6, then its valency = 8 -6 =2.

**8-Explain with examples (i) Atomic number (ii) Mass number (iii) Isotopes and (iv)Isobars. Give any two uses of isotopes.**

Ans.(i)Atomic number-The total number of positive charges at the nucleus is known as the atomic number which is equivalent to the number of protons, for example, the atomic number of hydrogen is 1 and the atomic number of oxygen is.

(ii)Mass number- The sum of the number of protons and neutrons at the nucleus is known as the mass number, as an example oxygen number of protons =8 and number of neutrons =8, so the mass number of oxygen atom = 8 +8 =16 u.

(iii)Isotopes- The pair of elements that has the same atomic numbers but have different atomic masses are known as isotopes, as for example, hydrogen has three isotopes, protium(1H1), deuterium (2H1), and tritium (3H1) which have the same atomic number,1 and different atomic masses 1,2 and 3 respectively.

(iv)Isobars-The pair of elements which have the same atomic masses but the different atomic number, as for example argon,40Ar18 and calcium, 40Ca20.

Uses of Isotopes- One of the isotopes of iodine is used for the treatment of goiter. One of the isotopes of uranium i.e U(235) is used for the treatment of cancer.

**Q9.Na ^{+} has completely filled K and L shells. Explain.**

Ans. The electronic distribution of the Na atom as per Neils Bohr’s atomic model must be in the form of 2n², where n is the number of orbital

Electrons in first orbit,K =2×1² = 2

Electrons in second orbit,K =2×2² = 8

The remaining 1 electron exist in third orbit

K= 2, L= 8, M= 1

Na^{+} ion is formed after freeing one electron which exists in the outermost orbital(M)

Therefore electronic configuration of Na^{+}

K = 2,L = 8

Therefore,Na^{+} has K and L shells completely filled

**Q10.If bromine atom is available in the form of, say, two isotopes ^{79}Br_{35} (49.7%) and ^{81}Br_{35}(50.3%), calculate the average atomic mass of bromine atom.**

**Ans.The average**** atomic mass of bromine**

**=49.7 % of 79 + 50.3% of 81**

**=(49.7 ×79)/100 + (50.3× 81)/100**

**=(3926.3 +4074.3)/100**

**= 80.006 u**

**Q11.The average atomic mass of a sample of an element X is 16.2 u. What are the percentages of isotopes ^{16}X_{8} and^{18}X_{8 }in the sample?**

Ans-Let the percentage of ^{16}X_{8} = a %

Pecentage of another isotope 18×8 = (100 – a)%

Average atomic mass of X

= a % of ^{16}X_{8} + (100 – a)% of ^{18}X_{8}

a % of ^{16}X_{8} + (100 – a)% of ^{18}X_{8} = 16.2

a % of 16 + (100 – a)% of 18 = 16.2

16a/100 – 18(100 – a)/100 = 16.2

a = 90

Therefore, percentage of ^{16}X_{8} in the sample = 90 %

And percentage of ^{18}X_{8} = 100 – 90 = 10 %

**Q12.If Z = 3,what would be the valency of the element ? Also , name the element.**
