(a) How are the f

Answer :

(a) (i) In the same group, all the elements have same number of valence electrons.

Group number of an element (up to 2 valence electrons) = no. of valence electrons

Group n. of element (more than 2 valence electrons) = 10+ Valence electrons.

(i) Elements present in the same period have same number of shells.

Period number of an element = no. of shells in an atom

(b) (i) As we go down the group, no. of shells increases at every step.

(ii) As we go from left to right in a period, no. of valence electrons of an element increases from period 1 to period 8.

(iii)When we move from left to right in a period, there is increase in the large positive charge on the nucleus. As a result, the forces of attraction between the nucleus and the electrons increases. This led to increase in the atomic radius of the elements from left to right in a period.

(iv)The atomic size increases down the group due to increase in a shell at every step.
