which of the following is true regarding the transition elements?
A. Multiple oxidation states resulting from the involvement of d electrons in bonding is a characteristic of transition elements.
B. Most transition elements have lower melting and boiling points than the main group elements.
C. Transition elements have predictable reactivity patterns.
D. Changes in atomic radii in transition elements are greater than those in the main group elements
A is a true statement.
B is not true.
C I think is true because chemists with experience can predict most of them; however, I believe the spirit of the question is to call it not true. Since there are multiple oxidation states a plethora of compounds are possible.
D is far from true.
I need help understanding oxidation I have a problem that states: The proper assignment of oxidation numbers to the elements in the compound LiAsO3 would be: I think the answer is +1 for Li, +3 for As and -2 for O. I think I am
Iron and manesiu are two common elements found in numerous compounds. magnesium is always in the +2 oxidation state while iron exhibits oxidation states of +2, +3,+4,and +6. why would magnesium not be found in the these upper
the alkali metals are a group of oxidation metals that decrease in melting point down the group. Halogens are non-metals that get coloured in colour and less reactive down the group. the transition elements in the middle of the
4, Assign oxidation states for the two elements in the compound OF2. Explain the rules that you use. 5. For each of the following oxidation-reduction reactions of metals and nonmetals, identify the element that is oxidized and the
The two most common oxidation states are Cr(III) and Cr(VI). Balance the following oxidation-reduction equations that involve one of these oxidation states of chromium. Assume that the reactions occur in acidic solution. A. Cr(s)
