The similarity between Lithium and Magnesium is particularly striking and arises because of their similar sizes: atomic radii, Li = 152 pm, Mg = 160 pm: ionic radii:  Li+ = 76 pm, Mg2+ = 72 pm. The main points of


similarity are:


 


(i)                  Both lithium and magnesium are harder lighter than other elements in the respective groups.


(ii)                Lithium and magnesium react slowly with water. Their oxides and hydroxides are much less soluble and their hydroxides decompose on heating.


(iii)               The oxides, Li2O and MgO do not combine with excess oxygen to give any superoxide.


(iv)              The carbonates of lithium and magnetism decompose easily on heating to form the oxides and CO2  .


(v)                Both LiCl and MgCl2 are soluble in ethanol.


(vi)              Both LiCl and MgCl2 are deliquescent and crystallize from aqueous solution as hydrates, LiCl.2H2O and MgCl2.8H2O.

pH of 10 power -9M HCl is approx.? ( not getting correct ans.)
 
 
Here H+ obtained by only HCl is =10 -9 M As we also know that the H+ obtained by dissociation of water=10 -7 M So here we can see thaty the H+ released by water is more that the dissociation...

1) 10 g of argon gas is compressed isothermally and reversibly at a temperature of 27 0 C from 10 Lit to 5 Lit. Calculate q and ∆H for this process. Ans: q = + 103.99 calories and ∆H = 0
 
 
The process is isothermal, T=constant. Change in internal energy(dU)=0 from 1 st law q= dU + dW q= dW ispthermal work done= nRT ln(V2/V1) You can use the above equation to find the q and dH....

Which is more stable: a carbocation attached to a methoxy group or a carbocation attached to benzene ring?
 
 
Hello Student Carbocation attached to a benzene ring is highly unstable. This is due to the fact that the benzene ring takes away the electron density from carbon atom which further makes...

Acc. to me, benzene is a nucleophile & carbocation, as its name suggests, is a cation i.e. it is electrophile. Thus, when an electrophile is attached to benzene, it becomes stable as benzene...

suppose you have a sample of sulphur containing 1x10 23 sulphur atoms.if a cyclic molecule of sulphur contains S 8 structure then how many molecules of S 8 do you have?
 
 
The sample of sulphur contains sulphur in the cyclic molecule form. 1 molecule contains 8 atoms of sulphur so 10 23 atoms will make (10 23 /8) molecules.
