Summary Skills to Develop To correlate the arrangement of atoms in the periodic table results in blocks corresponding to filling of the ns, np, nd, and nf orbitals As you have learned, the electron configurations of the elements explain the otherwise peculiar shape of the periodic table. Although the table was originally organized on the basis of physical and chemical similarities between the elements within groups, these similarities are ultimately attributable to orbital energy levels and the Pauli principle, which cause the individual subshells to be filled in a particular order.
For example, the two columns on the left, known as the s block, consist of elements in which the ns orbitals are being filled. The six columns on the right, elements in which the np orbitals are being filled, constitute the p block. Within each column, each element has the same valence electron configuration—for example, ns1 group 1 or ns2np1 group As you will see, this is reflected in important similarities in the chemical reactivity and the bonding for the elements in each column.
The electron configurations of the elements are in Figure 6.
Because each orbital can have a maximum of 2 electrons, there are 2 columns in the s block, 6 columns in the p block, 10 columns in the d block, and 14 columns in the f block. Hydrogen and helium are placed somewhat arbitrarily. Although hydrogen is not an alkali metal, its 1s1 electron configuration suggests a similarity to lithium [He]2s1 and the other elements in the first column. Although helium, with a filled ns subshell, should be similar chemically to other elements with an ns2 electron configuration, the closed principal shell dominates its chemistry, justifying its placement above neon on the right.
Valence electrons are the outer electrons for main-group elements; for transition metals, valence electrons also include electrons in the outermost d set of orbitals. It is easiest to determine the types of electrons by writing a condensed electron configuration. There are 2 inner electrons represented by [He] and 6 outer electrons.
The number of valence electrons 6 equals the outer electrons in this case. There are 2 outer electrons the 4s electrons , 2 valence electrons, and 18 inner electrons from [Ar].
Boron is in Group 3A Other elements in this group are Al, Ga, In, and Tl. Element 16 is sulfur, S, in Group 6A Element 57 is lanthanum, La, in Group 3B 3.
Other elements in this group are Sc, Y, and Ac. Ionization energy decreases down a main group and increases across a period. These opposite trends result because as the atom gets larger, the outer electron is further from the attraction of the positive charge of the nucleus, which is what holds the electron in the atom.
It thus takes less energy lower IE to remove the outer electron in a larger atom than to remove the outer electron in a smaller atom. As the atomic size decreases across a period due to higher Z eff , it takes more energy higher IE to remove the outer electron. As each successive electron is removed, the positive charge on the ion increases, which results in a stronger attraction between the leaving electron and the ion.
Thus, by looking at a series of successive ionization energies, we can determine the number of valence electrons. For instance, the electron configuration for potassium is [Ar]4s1. The first electron lost is the one from the 4s level. The second electron lost must come from the 3p level, and hence breaks into the core electrons.
Thus, we see a significant jump in the amount of energy for the second ionization when compared to the first ionization. The second drop occurs because the 3p4 electron occupies the same orbital as another 3p electron. The resulting electron-electron repulsion raises the orbital energy and thus it is easier to remove an electron from S 3p4 than P 3p3.
This value would exclude any metal, because metals lose an outer electron easily. A very negative, exothermic EA 1 suggests that this element easily gains one electron. These values indicate that the element belongs to the halogens, Group 7A 17 , which form —1 ions. Atomic size decreases up a main group larger outer electron orbital , so potassium is the smallest and cesium is the largest.
Potassium is the first element in the next period so it is larger than either Cl or S. Potassium is larger than calcium because K is further to the left than Ca in Period 4 of the periodic table.
Ionization energy increases up a main group. Ionization energy increases from left to right across a period. B experiences the lowest Z eff and has the lowest IE. The number of valence electrons identifies which group the element is in. Solution: The successive ionization energies show a very significant jump between the third and fourth IEs. This indicates that the element has three valence electrons. The fourth electron must come from the core electrons and thus has a very large ionization energy.
The electron configuration of the Period 2 element with three valence electrons is 1s22s22p1 which represents boron, B. The configuration is 1s22s22p63s2, Mg.
A very large jump between successive ionization energies will occur when the electron to be removed comes from a full lower energy level. Examine the electron configurations of the atoms. If the IE 2 represents removing an electron from a full orbital, then the IE 2 will be very large.
In addition, for atoms with the same outer electron configuration, IE 2 is larger for the smaller atom. These trends are the same as those for atomic size and opposite those for ionization energy. As the metallic character decreases, the oxide becomes more acidic. Thus, oxide acidity increases from left to right across a period and from bottom to top in a group. Solution: a Rb is more metallic because it is to the left and below Ca.
Write the electron configuration of the atom and then remove or add electrons until a noble gas configuration is achieved. Metals lose electrons and nonmetals gain electrons. Solution: a Cl: 1s22s22p63s23p5; chlorine atoms are one electron short of a noble gas configuration, so a —1 ion will form by adding an electron to have the same electron configuration as an argon atom: Cl—, 1s22s22p63s23p6.
Remember that one electron will occupy every orbital in a set p, d, or f before electrons will pair in an orbital in that set. In the noble gas configurations, all electrons are paired because all orbitals are filled.
Solution: a Configuration of 2A 2 group elements: [noble gas]ns2, no unpaired electrons. The electrons in the ns orbital are paired. Three unpaired electrons, one each in px, p y , and p z. There is one unpaired electron in one of the p orbitals.
Two unpaired electrons. One unpaired electron. Write the electron configuration of the atom and then remove the specified number of electrons. Remember that all orbitals in a p, d, or f set will each have one electron before electrons pair in an orbital. Diamagnetic Kr 5s 4d 8. Draw the partial orbital diagrams, remembering that all orbitals in d set will each have one electron before electrons pair in an orbital.
Solution: You might first write the condensed electron configuration for Pd as [Kr]5s24d8. However, the partial orbital diagram is not consistent with diamagnetism. Kr 5s 4d 5p Promoting an s electron into the d sublevel as in c [Kr]5s14d9 still leaves two electrons unpaired.
