10 Vander waass radius is considered in case of neon not covalent radius

12. In all the 3 cases an s electron in the unpaired state is to be removed. In the case of
Cu a 4s electron is to be removed which is closer to the nucleus than the 5s electron of
Ag. So I.P. decreasing from Cu to Ag. However from Ag to Au the 14 f electrons are added
which provide very poor shielding effect. The nuclear charge is thus enhanced and
therefore the outer electron of Au is more tightly held and so the IP is high.
13 The configuration of K is [Ar]4s while that of Cu is []3

So the answer lies

in the presence of 10 d electrons. A the electrons have got very poor screening effect so
the nuclear charge is not properly screened. Therefore the effective nuclear charge is
high and so the outer most electron is tightly held and high energy is needed to remove
the electron. 2
ionization energy of potassium is higher because the 2
electron from

is to be removed from stable inert gas configuration.

of copper is less than that of zinc, because removed of electron takes palce from

(attaining a more stable configuration3

where as in case of zinc its from

completely filled 4

(attaining the configuration 4

of copper is higher than zinc, because the removal of II

electron from stable

requires higher energy.

15. Due to the filled p orbital of nitrogen 1
ionization energy is higher than oxygen.
After removal of one electron oxygen becomes half filled and second ionization energy
becomes more as compared to nitrogen
16. 2 4 since

of Ni is less than its

and reverse
is the case in Pt.
17. (i) O, (ii) Cl
18. Addition of second electron is opposed by electrostatic repulsion of

19. In Be the extra electron is to be added in 2p-orbital because 2s orbital is completely
filled and in N, it is to added to a half filled 2p orbital. Since half filled and full filled
orbitals are more stable, reluctance in accept electron is found.

21. Electronegativity of A = 3.84; electronegativity of B = 3.08. therefore A has higher
