More than 8 electrons in structure?

Is the presence of the d-block the reason why atoms such as Xenon can go beyond the octet rule?

Electronegativity

So just to be sure, electronegativity follows the same trend as ionization energy and electron affinity on the periodic table right? If not, what trend does it follow?

Re: London Forces

All compounds can have an instantaneous dipole moment (even ions) meaning that London Forces exist for all compounds.

Re: Difference between two attractive forces

The main difference between the two is that dipole-dipole forces occur among molecules with dipole moments whereas London forces occur due to instantaneous dipoles that form in atoms or nonpolar molecules. I'm not sure how exactly you can tell if a compound has a dipole-dipole force from the chemica...

Re: 1F.9

The first ionization energy for sulfur and phosphorus atoms are nearly the same, despite sulfur having a larger Zeff; this is due to greater electron-electron repulsions in S, making the energy of the outermost electrons higher than predicted. Once the first electron is removed, the Zeff becomes the...

Re: 1E.9

For part A, see if the quantum numbers are invalid. n=4, which means l can only be 0,1,2, or 3, and since it’s 2, l is valid. M(l) can only be -l through l, so it is valid as it is -1. Lastly, m(s) can be either -1/2 or +1/2, so it is valid. For part B, it is not possible because l = 0, so m(l) must...

Re: 1F.19: s-block

S-block metals have lower ionization energies than p-block metals, which means that s-block metals tend to form cations as they are more willing to give away electrons. Thus, they are more reactive.

Re: Work Function for the Modules

The energy required to remove an electron is the work function, which they give you as 150.6 kJ/mol. All you need to do is convert that value into Joules, which is done by multiplying 150.6kJ/mol x 1000 g/kg = 150600 J/mol. Then divide that value by Avogadro's number (6.022 x 10^23 molecules/mol) to...

To find the stoichiometric coefficients, simply balance the chemical equation.
Before balance: Ca + H2O -> H2 + Ca(OH)2
Balanced: Ca + 2H20 -> H2 + Ca(OH)2
The stoichiometric coefficients are 1, 2, 1 and 1.
