Sol. Fluorine, though higher than chlorine in the periodic table, has a very small atomic size. This makes the fluoride anion so formed unstable (highly reactive) due to a very high charge/mass ratio. As a result, fluorine has an electron affinity less than that of chlorine.
Sol. Noble Gases have complete valence electron shells.Most elements ‘want’ to have a complete electron shell with 8 electrons. Since the Noble Gases already have that ‘perfect status’ then they have an affinity of 0. Affinity is the change in energy of the atom when an electron is added.
Sol. The densest chemical element is osmium (which is a metal). Osmium has a density of around 22 grams per cubic centimeter, about twice the density of lead.
Sol. The most commonly used method of calculation is that originally proposed by Linus Pauling.
Sol. Argon is the highest ionization potential energy .
Sol.The chemical element with the lowest melting point is Helium.
Sol. An English scientist by the name of John Newlands tried to classify the elements in a unique manner. He first started by arranging all the elements in a ascending order according to their atomic weights.
Sol. The elements with atomic numbers 2, 10, 18, 36, 54 and 86 are all Inert gas.
Sol. Cesium and francium are the most reactive elements in this group. Alkali metals can explode if they are exposed to water.
Sol. The lanthanide series consists of the 14 elements, with atomic numbers 58 through 71,


In the last month i.e. in May daily we will provide you with a test of the previous years’ question papers, this will increase your confidence of solving the real exam and will make you familiar with the real-time exam.
