hydrogen has three isotopes: Protium ( 1 proton) , Deuterium ( 1 proton and 1 neutron), and tritium (1 proton and 2 neutrons).


 


which of these isotopes is most electronegative and why?

Dear Janani,


Protium would have the highest electronegativity value followed by Deutrium & then finally tritium ..


The electronegativity decreases in the order..


       Protium(1H1)>Deutrium(1H2)>Tritium(1H3)


 


This is because electronegativity is the tendency to attract the shared pair of electrons towards a particular atom..Now for Protium(1H1) it has one proton(+ve charged) & so it could attract the electrons effectively towards itself but in deutrium there is an added neutral charge in the form of a neutron which increases the size thus reduces the electronegativity tendency of the deutrium atom & similarly for tritium..!!


 


If you still have any doubts then please ask them all so as to clarify them..!!

as we increase the no. of electrons in s orbital, we have a strong shielding from s orbital..... so net effective charge on the adjacent atom's electrons decreses....hence its electronegativity decreses.....


Thus, Protium has largest electro-vetivity...... Smile

which is more acidic water or methanol?
 
 
Water is more acidic than methanol because methanol is a basic and water can be considered as neutral. So, in the ph scale water is more reactive than methanol. methanol is the simplest form...

no... methanol is more acidic than water !!! (it is the only exception of alcohol being more acidic than water....generally water is more acidic than alcohols )

Which of the following names are correct as per IUPAC norms? 2,6,6-trimethyloctane 3,3,7-trimethyloctane Pent-4-en-2-yne Diethyl ether
 
 
3 and 4 are incorrect. But in case of 1& 2, 1 is given correct in a book reasoning first locant (here methyl group) should get lowest number (3) whereas in 2 nd first locant gets 3 which is...

Lowest locant rule is violated in compunds one and third,fourth is common name and not IUPAC name,hence second compound is the correct answer
 
Harihara Narayanan 6 months ago
 
The second compound would be the right answer as first one and the third violates the lowest sum rule and the last one is a common name.
