Write the atomicity of the following:
(i) I2 (ii) H2S
(iii) HNO3 (iv) Na2SO4
Atomicity: The number of atoms constituting a molecule is known as its atomicity.
i. In I2, there are two atoms of iodine constituting a molecule.
Hence, the atomicity is 2 (diatomic).
ii. In H2S, there are two atoms of hydrogen and one atom of Sulphur constituting a molecule of H2S. Hence, the atomicity is 3 (triatomic).
iii. In HNO3, there are three atoms of oxygen, one atom of nitrogen and one atom of hydrogen sulphur constituting a molecule of HNO3. Hence, the atomicity is five.
iv. In Na2SO4, there are two atoms of sodium, one atom of Sulphur and four atoms of oxygen constituting a molecule of Na2SO4 Hence, the atomicity is seven.
v. In S8, there are eight atoms of sulphur constituting a molecule.
Hence, the atomicity is eight.
