## Here is the Classification of Elements and Periodicity in Properties Formulas for Class 11, JEE and NEET

### Development of Modern Periodic Table :

• Dobereiner’s Triads : He arranged similar elements in the groups of three elements called as triads
• Newland’s Law of Octave : He was the first to correlate the chemical properties of the elements with their atomic masses.
• Lother Meyer’s Classification : He plotted a graph between atomic masses against their respective atomic volumes for a number of elements. He found the observations;
• elements with similar properties occupied similar positions on the curve,
• alkali metals having larger atomic volumes occupied the crests,
• transitions elements occupied the troughs,
• the halogens occupied the ascending portions of the curve before the inert gases and
• alkaline earth metals occupied the positions at about the mid points of the descending portions of the curve.

On the basis of these observations he concluded that the atomic volumes (a physical property) of the elements are the periodic functions of their atomic masses.

Mendeleev’s Periodic Table :

Mendeleev’s Periodic’s Law: the physical and chemical properties of the elements are the periodic functions of their atomic masses.

Merits of Mendeleev’s Periodic table:

• It has simplified and systematized the study of elements and their compounds.
• It has helped in predicting the discovery of new elements on the basis of the blank spaces given in its periodic table.

Demerits in Mendeleev’s Periodic Table :

• Position of hydrogen is uncertain. It has been placed in IA and VIIA groups.
• No separate positions were given to isotopes.
• Anomalous positions of lanthanides and actinides in periodic table.
• Order of increasing atomic weights is not strictly followed in the arrangement of elements in the periodic table.
• Similar elements were placed in different groups.
• It didn’t explained the cause of periodicity.

### Long form of the Periodic Table or Moseley’s Periodic Table :

Modern Periodic Law (Moseley’s Periodic Law) :
If the elements are arranged in order of their increasing atomic number, after a regular interval, elements with similar properties are repeated.

Periodicity:
The repetition of the properties of elements after regular intervals when the elements are arranged in the order of increasing atomic number is called periodicity.

Cause of Periodicity :
The periodic repetition of the properties of the elements is due to the recurrence of similar valence shell electronic configurations after certain regular intervals. The modern periodic table consists of horizontal rows (periods) and vertical column (groups).

Periods :
There are seven periods numbered as 1,2,3,4,5,6 and 7 .

• Each period consists of a series of elements having same valence shell.
• Each period corresponds to a particular principal quantum number of the valence shell present in it.
• Each period starts with an alkali metal having outermost electronic configuration as $ns ^{1}$.
• Each period ends with a noble gas with outermost electronic configuration $ns ^{2} np ^{6}$ except helium having outermost electronic configuration as $1 s ^{2}$.
• Each period starts with the filling of new energy level.
• The number of elements in each period is twice the number of atomic orbitals available in energy level that is being filled.

Groups:
There are eighteen groups numbered as $1,2,3,4,5, \ldots \ldots \ldots .13,14,15,16,17,18$. Group consists of a series of elements having similar valence shell electronic configuration.

### Classification of the Elements:

1. s-block elements: Group 1 & 2 elements constitute the s-block. General electronic configuration is [inert gas] $ns ^{1-2}$.
s-block elements lie on the extreme left of the periodic table.
2. p-block elements: Group 13 to 18 elements constitute the p-block. General electronic configuration is [inert gas] $ns ^{2} np ^{1-6}$
3. d-block elements: Group 3 to 12 elements constitute the d-block. General electronic configuration is [inert gas] $(n-1) d^{1-10} n s^{1-2}$
4. f-block elements: General electronic configuration is $( n -2) f ^{1-14}( n -1) d ^{0-1} ns ^{2} .$
All f-block elements belong to $3^{\text {rd }}$ group.
Elements of f-blocks have been classified into two series.
(1) Ist inner transition or 4 f-series, contains 14 elements ${ }_{58}$ Ce to ${ }_{71}$ Lu.
( 2 ). IInd inner transition or 5 f-series, contains 14 elements ${ }_{90}$ Th to ${ }_{103}$ Lr.

### Prediction of period, group and block :

• Period of an element corresponds to the principal quantum number of the valence shell.
• The block of an element corresponds to the type of subshell which receives the last electron.
• The group is predicted from the number of electrons in the valence shell or/and penultimate shell as follows.
• For s-block elements: $\quad$ Group no. = the no. of valence electrons
• For p-block elements: Group no. $=10+$ no. of valence electrons
• For d-block elements: Group no. = no. of electrons in (n – 1) d sub shell + no. of electrons in valence shell.

### Metals and nonmetals:

The metals are characterised by their nature of readily giving up the electron(s) and from shinning luster. Metals comprises more than 78 % of all known elements and appear on the left hand side of the periodic table. Metals are usually solids at room temperature (except mercury, gallium). They have high melting and boiling points and are good conductors of heat and electricity. Oxides of metals are generally basic in nature (some metals in their higher oxidation state form acid oxides e.g. $CrO _{3}$ ).

Nonmetals do not lose electrons but take up electrons to form corresponding anions. Nonmetals are located at the top right hand side of the periodic table. Nonmetals are usually solids, liquids or gases at room temperature with low melting and boiling points. They are poor conductors of heat and electricity. Oxides of nonmetals are generally acidic in nature.

### Metalloids (Semi metals) :

The metalloids comprise of the elements B, Si, Ge, As, Sb and Te.

### Diagonal relationship :

Diagonal relationship arises because of :
(i) on descending a group, the atoms and ions increase in size. On moving from left to right in the periodic table, the size decreases. Thus on moving diagonally, the size remains nearly the same.

(ii) it is sometimes suggested that the diagonal relationship arises because of diagonal similarity in electronegativity values.

### The periodicity of atomic properties:

##### (1) Effective nuclear charge :

The effective nuclear charge $\left(Z_{\text {eff }}\right)=Z-\sigma,$ (where $Z$ is the actual nuclear charge (atomic number of the element) and $\sigma$ is the shielding (screening) constant). The value of $\sigma$ i.e. shielding effect can be determined using the Slater’s rules.

1. Covalent radius : It is one-half of the distance between the centres of two nuclei (of like atoms) bonded by a single covalent bond. Covalent radius is generally used for nonmetals.
2. Vander Waal’s radius (Collision radius) : It is one-half of the internuclear distance between two adjacent atoms in two nearest neighbouring molecules of the substance in solid state.
3. Metallic radius (Crystal radius) : It is one-half of the distance between the nuclei of two adjacent metal atoms in the metallic crystal lattice.Thus, the covalent, vander Wall’s and metallic radius magnitude wise follows the order,
$r_{\text {covalent }}<r_{\text {crystal }}<r_{\text {vander Walls }}$

The effective distance from the centre of nucleus of the ion up to which it has an influence in the ionic bond is called ionic radius.

##### (4) Ionisation Energy:

Ionisation energy (IE) is defined as the amount of energy required to remove the most loosely bound electron from an isolated gaseous atom to form a cation.
$M ( g ) \stackrel{\left( IE _{1}\right)}{\longrightarrow} M ^{+}( g )+ e ^{-}$

$M ^{+}( g )+ IE _{2} \longrightarrow M ^{2+}( g )+ e ^{-}$

$M ^{2+}( g )+ IE _{3} \longrightarrow M ^{+3}( g )+ e ^{-}$

$IE _{1}, IE _{2} \& IE _{3}$ are the $I ^{ st }, II ^{ nd } \& III ^{ rd }$ ionization energies to remove electron from a neutral atom, monovalent and divalent cations respectively. In general, $( IE )_{1}<( IE )_{2}<( IE )_{3}<\ldots \ldots \ldots \ldots$

Factors Influencing Ionisation energy:

• Size of the Atom : lonisation energy decreases with increase in atomic size.
• Nuclear Charge : The ionisation energy increases with increase in the nuclear charge.
• Shielding or screening effect : The larger the number of electrons in the inner shells, greater is the screening effect and smaller the force of attraction and thus ionization energy (IE) decreases.
• Penetration effect of the electron : Penetration effect of the electrons follows the order $s>p>d>$ for, the same energy level. Higher the penetration of electron higher will be the ionisation energy.
• (E) Electronic Configuration : If an atom has exactly half-filled or completely filled orbitals, then such an arrangement has extra stability.
##### (5) Electron Gain Enthalphy:

The electron gain enthalpy $\Delta_{ eg } H ^{\Theta}$ is the change in standard molar enthalpy when a neutral gaseous atom gains an electron to form an anion.

$X(g)+e^{-}(g) \longrightarrow X^{-}(g)$

The second electron gain enthalpy, the enthalpy change for the addition of a second electron to an initially neutral atom, invariably positive because the electron repulsion out weighs the nuclear attraction.

• Group 17 elements (halogens) have very high negative electron gain enthalpies (i.e. high electron affinity) because they can attain stable noble gas electronic configuration by picking up an electron.
• Across a period, with increase in atomic number, electron gain enthalpy becomes more negative
• As we move in a group from top to bottom, electron gain enthalpy becomes less negative
• Noble gases have large positive electron gain enthalpies
• Negative electron gain enthalpy of $O$ or $F$ is less than $S$ or $Cl$.
• Electron gain enthalpies of alkaline earth metals are very less or positive
• Nitrogen has very low electron affinity
• (i) Electron affinity $\propto \frac{1}{\text { Atomic size }}$
(ii) Electron affinity $\propto$ Effective nuclear charge $\left(z_{e f f}\right)$
(iii) Electron affinity $\propto \frac{1}{\text { Screening effect }}$
(iv) Stability of half filled and completely filled orbitals of a subshell is comparatively more and the addition of an extra electron to such an system is difficult and hence the electron affinity value decreases.
##### (6) Electronegativity :

Electronegativity is a measure of the tendency of an element to attract shared electrons towards itself in a covalently bonded molecules.

• Pauling’s scale :
$$\begin{array}{l} \Delta=X_{A}-X_{B}=0.208 \sqrt{E \cdot A-B}-\sqrt{E_{A-A} \times E_{B-B}} \\ E_{A-B}=B o n d \text { enthalpy/Bond energy of } A-B \text { bond } \\ E_{A-A}=\text { Bond energy of } A-A \text { bond } \\ E_{B-B}=\text { Bond energy of } B-B \text { bond } \end{array}$$
(All bond energies are in kcal / mol)
$$\Delta=X_{A}-X_{B}=0.1017 \sqrt{E \cdot A-B}-\sqrt{E_{A-A} \times E_{B-B}}$$
All bond energies are in $kJ / mol$.
• Mulliken’s scale :
$\chi_{M}=\frac{ I E+E A}{2}$
Paulings’s electronegativity $\chi_{ p }$ is related to Mulliken’s electronegativity $\chi_{ M }$ as given below.
$$\chi_{P}=1.35\left(\chi_{M}\right)^{1 / 2}-1.37$$
Mulliken’s values were about 2.8 times larger than the Pauling’s values.
##### (7) Periodicity of Valence or Oxidation States :

There are many elements which exhibit variable valence. This is particularly characteristic of transition elements and actinoids.

##### (8) Periodic Trends and Chemical Reactivity :
• In a group, basic nature of oxides increases or acidic nature decreases. Oxides of the metals are generally basic and oxides of the nonmetals are acidic. The oxides of the metalloids are generally amphoteric in nature. The oxides of Be, Al, Zn, Sn, As, Pb and Sb are amphoteric.
• In a period the nature of the oxides varies from basic to acidic.
