The ionic radius of Be2+ is estimated to be 31 pm : the charge/ radius ratio is nearly the same as that of the Al3+ ion. Hence beryllium resembles aluminium in some ways. Some of the similarities are:


 


(i)                  Like aluminum, beryllium is not readily attacked by acids because of the presence of an oxide film on the surface of the metal.


(ii)                Beryllium hydroxide dissolves in excess of alkali to give a beryllate ion, just as aluminium hydroxide gives aluminate ion.


(iii)               The chlorides of both beryllium and aluminium have Cl- bridged chloride structure in vapour phase. Both the chlorides are soluble in organic solvents and are strong Lewis acids. They are used as Friedel Craft catalysts.


(iv)              Beryllium and aluminium ions have strong tendency to form complexes.

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....

does the volume strength of H2O2 depend on conditions? since 1L of H2O2 at different conditions give different volume of O2. then, what is the use of such volume strength labelling?
 
 
The volume strength can give different volume a of O2 at different condition, but at STP the volume given of O2 can be converted to its number of mole and so we have molarity of H2O2. As we...

if h2o2 has interamloecular h-bonding then why is it very unstable
 
 
The formula for hydrogen peroxide is H2O2, so compared to water (H2O), there is an extra oyxgen atom in the molecule. The oxygen atoms in hydrogen peroxide are not in the most stable state....
