Few problems along with their solutions from this chapter are given below:
Q. The electronic configuration of Cu (II) is 3d9 where as that of Cu(I) is 3d10. Which of the following is correct?
(a) Cu(II) is more stable
(b) Cu(II) is less stable
(c) Cu(II) and Cu(II) are equally stable
(d) Stability of Cu(I) and Cu(II) depends on nature of copper salts
Ans. (a) Cu(II) is more stable
Cu (II) is more stable than Cu (I). As it is known that, Cu (I) has 3d10 stable configuration while Cu (II) has 3d9 configuration. But Cu (II) is more stable due to greater effective nuclear, i.e., it hold 17 electrons instead of 18 in Cu (I).
Q. Transition elements show high melting points. Why?
Ans. Transition elements show high melting points, due to the involvement of greater number of electrons in the interatomic bonding from (n-1) d-orbitals in addition to ns electrons in forming metallic bond.
Q.The halides of transition elements become more covalent with increasing oxidation state of the metal. Why?
Ans. As the oxidation state increases, size of the ion of transition element decreases. As per Fajan's rule, as the size of metal ion decreases, covalent character of the bond formed increases.
Therefore, the halides of transition elements become more covalent with increasing oxidation state of the metal.
