Classification of Elements and Periodicity in Properties Assignments/DPPs

The chapter “Classification of Elements and Periodicity in Properties” in Class 11 chemistry delves into the fascinating organization of elements known as the periodic table. This systematic arrangement, based on atomic number, reveals remarkable periodic trends in their properties, forming a crucial foundation for success in the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE), National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET), and beyond.

Overview : Classification of Elements and Periodicity in
Properties for Class 11 and JEE

Understanding the Periodic Table:

  • Periodic table: A chart that groups elements based on their atomic numbers, reflecting a periodic recurrence of their chemical and physical properties.
  • Horizontal rows (periods): Elements in the same period have the same number of electron shells but increasing atomic number.
  • Vertical columns (groups): Elements within the same group possess similar chemical properties due to the arrangement of their outermost electrons, known as valence electrons.
  • Metals, non-metals, and metalloids: Classification of elements based on their physical and chemical properties, with metals occupying the left-hand side of the table, non-metals occupying the right-hand side, and metalloids existing along the diagonal border.

Embracing the Power of Periodicity:

  • Periodicity: The tendency for certain properties of elements to repeat at regular intervals when arranged in increasing order of their atomic numbers.
  • Periodic trends: These trends include:
    • Atomic radius: Generally decreases across a period from left to right due to increasing nuclear charge and attraction towards electrons.
    • Ionization energy: Generally increases across a period from left to right due to the increasing difficulty in removing an electron from an atom with a stronger positive nuclear charge.
    • Electron affinity: Generally increases across a period from left to right due to the increasing attraction of the nucleus for additional electrons.
    • Electronegativity: Generally decreases down a group from top to bottom due to increasing distance between the nucleus and valence electrons.

Essential Formulas (for reference):

  • Atomic radius (r): The distance from the nucleus to the outermost shell of electrons.
  • Ionization energy (IE): The minimum energy required to remove the most loosely bound electron from an atom in its gaseous state.
  • Electron affinity (EA): The energy change associated with the addition of an electron to a gaseous atom.
  • Electronegativity: The relative ability of an atom to attract shared electrons towards itself in a molecule.

Question Types in JEE and NEET:

  • Identifying the group and period of an element based on its atomic number: Utilizing the periodic table organization.
  • Predicting the properties of an element based on its position in the periodic table: Applying the knowledge of periodic trends.
  • Comparing and contrasting properties of elements within the same group or period: Analyzing the trends in atomic radius, ionization energy, electron affinity, and electronegativity.
  • Explaining the periodic trends: Relating the trends to the electronic configurations and the attraction between electrons and the nucleus.
  • Solving problems involving periodic trends: Utilizing the trends to predict missing data or solve problems related to atomic properties.
  • Connecting to real-world applications: Recognizing how the knowledge of periodic trends helps predict the reactivity of elements, understand the formation of ionic and covalent bonds, and design new materials.
