Few problems along with their solutions from this chapter are given below:

Q. Maximum covalency of nitrogen is _______.

(a) 3       (b) 5       (c) 4       (d) 6

Ans. (c) 4

Maximum covalency of nitrogen is 4 in which one electron is made available by s-orbital and 3 electrons are made available by p-orbitals. Hence, total four electrons are available for bonding.

Q. Which of the following options are not in accordance with the property mentioned against them?

(a) F2 > Cl2 > Br2 > I2      Oxidising power

(b) MI > MBr > MCl > MF   Ionic character of metal halide

(c) F2 > Cl2 > Br2 > I2      Bond dissociation enthalpy

(d) HI < HBr < HCl < HF    Hydrogen-halogen bond strength

Answer. (b, c)

(b) As ability to gain electron increases oxidising property increases. Here, F is the most electronegative element having highest value of SRP hence it has highest oxidising power.

Correct order of ionic character of metal halide is:

                                                                     MI < MBr < MCl < MF

As electronegativity difference between metal and halogen increases, ionic character increases.

(c) Due to electronic repulsion among lone pair in F2 molecule, the correct order of bond dissociation enthalpy is as follows:

                                                                      Cl2 > Br2 > F2>I2

Q. PH3 forms bubbles when passed slowly in water but NH3 dissolves. Explain why?

Ans. Dissolution of NH3 and PH3 in water can be explained on the basis of H-bonding. NH3 forms H-bond with water so, it is soluble but PH3 does not form H-bond with water so it remains as gas and forms bubble in water.

Q. Assertion (A) HNO3 makes iron passive.

Reason (R) HNO3 forms a protective layer of ferric nitrate on the surface of iron.

Ans. (c) Assertion is true, but reason is false.

HNO3 makes iron passive due to formation of passive form of oxide on the surface. Hence, Fe does not dissolve in conc. HNO3 solution.
