Variation of total ionization energies of Al(n+) as a function of n from n=1 to n=8. Explain the discontinuity in your curve.

2 years ago


Answers : (1)


The discontinuity in the curve would be present at Al+ , Al3+ , Al6+ (All these are stabilised states due to completely or half filled atomic subshells). Al3+ is the greatly stabilised due to noble gas configuration. A+ sue to half filled s subshell and Al6+ due to half filled p subshell.

Other than this thse discontinuities, the ionization enthalpies would increase with oxn state as effective nuclear chrge would increase.

A body travels 10 m along north, 5 m along west, 5 m along south and 5 v2 m along south east. The net displacement of the body is 5 v2 m (5+5 v2 ) m (20+5 v2) m zero
The given figure shows the path traversed by the body. Here it is evident that the net displacement is zero because the starting and ending points are the same. The net displacement of the...

Bond angle of hydrides of group 15 decreases from top to bottom . Why?
. All hydrides are pyramidal in shape. The bond angle decreases on moving down the group due to decrease in bond pair–bond pair repulsion.NH3 PH3 AsH3 SbH3 BiH3 107O 94O 92O 91O 90O

Why Acetaldehyde is more soluble than Formaldehyde in water !
There is no H-bonding in both Acetaldehyde and Formaldehyde. So solubility depends on the vanderwaals forces of attractions which are proportional to molecular weight of compounds. Since MW...
