Describe the importance of the following : [3]

23. A quantitative measure of the tendency of an element to lose electron is given by its ionization enthalpy. It represents the energy required to remove an electron from an isolated gaseous atom in its ground state. Energy is always required to remove electrons from an atom and hence ionization enthalpies are always positive. The second ionization enthalpy will be higher than the first ionization enthalphy because it is more difficult to remove an electron from a positively charged ion than from a neutral atom.

Now answer the following questions :

(i) Which of the following pairs of elements would you expect to have lower ionisation enthalpy : [2]

(i) Cl or F (ii) Cl or S (iii) K or Ar (iv) Kr or Xe

(ii) The first ionization enthalpy values (in kJ mol-1) of group 13 elements are :

B Al Ga In T1
801 577 579 558 589

How would you explain this deviation from the general trend ? [Value Based Question] [2]

(ii) When an ideal gas expands into vacuum, there is neither absorption nor evolution of heat. Why ? [HOTS] [5]


(i) Justify the following statements :

(a) An exothermic reaction is always thermodynamically spontaneous.

(b) The entropy of a substance increases on going from liquid to vapour state at any temperature.

(ii) Why standard entropy of an elementary substance is not zero whereas standard enthalpy of formation is taken as zero ? [HOTS] [5]

25. Indicate the a-and n-bonds in the following molecules : [5]

C6H6, C6H12, C6H12, CH2 = C = CH2, CH3NO3.
