Dear Farah,


 



The valence bond theory was fairly successful in explaining qualitatively the geometry and magnetic behaviour of the complexes. But, it could not explain the following :



(i) The origin of their absorption spectra could not be explained.



(ii) Why did different complexes of the same metal show different colours.



(iii) Relative stabilities of different complexes could not be explained.



(iv) Why should certain ligands form high spin, while others low spin complexes.




Best Of Luck...!!!!

H2 + I2 = 2HI (an elementary reaction)...If the volume of the container containing the gaseous mixture is increased to 2 times ,then final rate of reaction !- become 4 times 2 become ¼ th of...
 
 
rate law = k[H2][I2] when we increase the volume by 2 times the concentration becomes half. The rate of reaction becomes one fourth of the initial value. so, option (2) is correct....

H2 + I2 = 2HI As it is elementary reaction, so order=molecularity=2 rate(r1)=k[H2][I2] Now the volume is increased two times, so their concentration would be ½ of original value. so...
