The 64 PATTERNS—NON-METALS Key words Hydrogen: preparation 1 Obtaining hydrogen using Kipps apparatus anhydrous dry gas hydrochloric acid hydrogen 1 Obtaining hydrogen using Kipps apparatus hydrogen is generated using a Kipps apparatus. When the tap is opened, dilute hydrochloric acid floods the bottom compartment and the level rises until it reacts with granulated zinc in the middle compartment. Zinc reacts with dilute hydrochloric acid to produce hydrogen: ● Traditionally, c Zn(s) + 2HCl(aq) ➞ ZnCl2(aq) + H2(g) ● If the tap is closed, hydrogen continues to be produced for a short time, and the pressure of the gas in the middle compartment gradually increases.
In ionic bonding, the atoms in a compound gain, lose, or share electrons so the number of electrons in their outer shell is the same as the nearest noble gas on the periodic table. ● Non-metals gain electrons to give negatively charged ions (anions). ● Metal atoms loose electrons to give positively charged ions (cations). ● Ionic Sodium atom (Na) Chlorine atom (Cl) 1 Formation of sodium chloride (NaCl) ●A Chlorine ion (Cl–) Sodium ion (Na+) Na+ Na Cl– Cl Sodium chloride (NaCl) sodium atom has one electron in its outer shell.
Transition metals generally have very high boiling points. ● The noble gases exist as single atoms with only weak forces of attraction between them. Consequently, their boiling points are very low because it takes relatively little energy to overcome these forces. ● Using the first six periods minus the lanthanide series, the diagram highlights the element with the highest boiling point in a period. 4602 337 –62 Key words Elements whose boiling points are the greatest in their period C Si V Mo Re Carbon Silicon Vanadium Molybdenum Rhenium © Diagram Visual Information Ltd.
