(a) Complete the following chemical reaction equations:
(b) Explain the following observations about the transition/inner
(i) There is in general an increase in density of element from
titanium (Z = 22) to copper (Z = 29).
(ii) There occurs much more frequent
metal-metal bonding in compounds of heavy
transition elements (3rdseries).
(iii) The members of the actinoid series exhibit a
larger number of oxidation states than the corresponding members
of the lanthanoid series.
(a) Complete the following chemical equations for reactions:
(b) Give an explanation for each of the following observations:
(i) The gradual decrease in size (actinoid
contractions) from element to element is greater among the
actinoids than among the lanthanoids (lanthanoid
(ii) The greatest number of oxidation states are exhibited by the
members in the middle of a transition series.
(iii) With the same d-orbital configuration
Cr2+ion is a reducing agent but Mn3+ion is an
