India Study Solution - Hints and Solutions Chemistry MCQ Test Series
s-Block Elements
(Group 1 Elements: Alkali Metals; Group 2 Elements: Alkaline Earth Metals)
Solutions of Chemistry Test Series (MCQ) – Set 1 (Q. No.1–10)
Answer 1: d. (Hint: Be has higher polarising power on account of smallest size of atom).
Answer 2: a. Answer 3: a.
Answer 4: a. (Hint: Mg does not impact colour to the flame but sodium gives golden yellow colour).
Answer 5: b. (Hint: On the basis of lattice energy, the melting point decreases in the alkali group as lattice energy decreases with the increase of the atomic number. However, LiCl has covalent character due to very small size of Li+ ion. Hence, melting point of NaCl is highest among the above chlorides).
Answer 6: d. (Hint: The metallic bond is purely the electric attraction between the mobile electrons and positive part of the atom, the kernel. This electrical attraction depends upon the (i) number of mobile electrons per atom and (ii) the size of the atom. The strength of metallic bond is weakest in Cs metallic lattice amongst these elements because of largest atomic radius).
Answer 7: b. Answer 8: b. Answer 9: d.
Answer 10: c. (Hint:
a. Beryllium hydroxide is amphoteric in nature as it reacts with acid and alkali both.
Be(OH)2 + 2OH → [Be(OH)4]2- (beryllate ion)
Be(OH)2 + 2HCl + 2H2O → [Be(OH2)4]Cl2.
b. The solubility of the alkaline earth metal sulphate decreases down the group from Be to Ba. This is because of the fact that down the group with increasing size of cation the lattice energy as well as hydration energy also decrease but the change in hydration energy is more as compare that of lattice energy.
c. Down the group, the bond dissociation enthalpies decrease from LiH to CsH. So reducing power of hydride of alkali metal increases down the group.
d. 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 has diagonal relationship with aluminium.
So, option c. is incorrect).
