Questions 1. Why there was a necessity for classification of elements? Give at least two reasons.

Answer : It helps in the synthetic study of the properties of elements

Questions 2. From the list of elements given below, make three triads and name the family of each triad.

Cl, Li, Ca, Br, Na, St, 1, K and Ba.

Answer : (i) Alkali metals triad : Li Na K (ii)Alkaline earth metals triad : Ca Sr Ba (iii) Halogens triad : Cl Br

Questions 3.

(a) Name an alkali metal other than lithium, sodium and potassium.– rubidium (Rb), cesium (Cs), and francium (Fr)

(b) Name an alkaline earth metal other than calcium, strontium and barium–beryllium (Be), magnesium (Mg),  and radium (Ra)

(c) Name one halogen other than chlorine, bromine and iodine–fluorine (F),astatine (At), and tennessine (Ts).

(d) Name a non metal having properties similar to carbon.–Silicon.

(e) Name a rare gas other than neon, krypton and xenon.–Argon (Ar).

Questions 4. What is the achievement of Dobereiner’s law of triads?

Answer : It gave an idea that elements with similar properties could be arranged in specific ways

Questions 5. Complete the statement given below:

On the basis of Newland’s law of classification of elements, the properties of sodium and potassium similar, because potassium is the . Eighth… element, starting from sodium.

Questions 6. State two achievements of the law of octaves.

Answer : the first logical attempt to classify elements on the basis of atomic weights. Periodicity of elements was recognized for the first time

Questions 7. State two reasons for rejecting the law of octaves.

Answer : Limitation of law of octaves:

  • The law was applicable to elements up to calcium only.
  • There is no place for newly divorced elements.
  • Cobalt and Nickel have different properties but put in one slot.
  • Iron is a metal but put in non meta

Questions 8. The elements A and B obey law of octaves. How many elements are between A and B?

Answer : There are a total of 6 elements in between elements A and B

Questions 9.

(a) What are the basis of classification of elements in Mendeleev’s periodic table?

(b) State Mendeleev’s periodic law.

Answer :

(a) on the basis of their atomic mass and similarity in chemical properties.

(b) According to Mendeleev periodic physical and chemical properties of elements depend on their atomic weight

Questions 10. State two merits of Mendeleev’s periodic table over previous attempts of classification of the elements.

Answer :  1. Mendeleev’s periodic law predicted the existence of certain elements such as gallium, scandium and germanium, which were not discovered at that time. 2. Mendeleev’s periodic table could also predict the properties of various elements based on their position in the periodic table

Answer :  lithium (Li), sodium (Na), potassium (K), rubidium (Rb), cesium (Cs), and francium (Fr). They belong to 1A group

Questions 14. Name four alkaline earth metals. To which group do they belong?

Answer :  beryllium (Be), magnesium (Mg), calcium (Ca), strontium (Sr), barium (Ba), and radium (Ra). They belong to 2A group

Questions 15. Name four elements of VIIA group. State the common name of this group of elements.

Answer :  fluorine (F), chlorine (Cl), bromine (Br), iodine (I), and astatine (At). common name of this group of elements is Halogen

Questions 16. Which period is (a) shortest (b) longest in the long form of periodic table? How many elements are in (a) and (b)?

Answer :a) shortest is 1st period having 2 elements(b) longest is 6th and 7th period having 32 element each
