ATOMIC RADIUS- The distance from the center of the nucleus to the outermost shell of the electrons in the atom of any element is called its atomic radius.


• Decreases from left to right in a period.

• Increases on moving top to bottom in a group.


COVALENT RADIUS- Half the inter-nuclear distance between two similar atoms of any element which are covalently bonded to each other by a single covalent bond is called covalent radius.


VANDER WAAL’S RADIUS: Half the inter-nuclear separation between two similar adjacent atoms belonging to the two neighboring molecules of the same substance in the solid state is called the van der Waals’ radius of that atom.


METALLIC RADIUS: Half the distance between the nuclei of the two adjacent metal atoms in a close packed lattice of the metal is called its metallic radius. Van der Waals ’radius > Metallic radius > Covalent radius


IONISATION ENTHALPY: The ionization enthalpy is the molar enthalpy change accompanying the removal of an electron from a gaseous phase atom or ion in its ground state. Thus enthalpy change for the reaction.M (g)→ M++ e-Generally the ionisation enthalpies follow the order ( there are few exceptions): (ΔiH1) < (ΔiH2)< (ΔiH3)



i) The ionisation enthalpy decreases on moving top to bottom in a group. 

ii) The ionisation enthalpy increases on moving from left to right in a period


ELECTRON GAIN ENTHALPY: The electron gain enthalpy ((ΔegH) is the molar enthalpy change when an isolated gaseous atom or ion in its ground state adds an electron to form the corresponding anion thus the enthalpy change for the reaction;X(g)+ e- → X



(i) In period- The electron gain enthalpy increases from left to right in a period.

(ii) In group- The electron gain enthalpy decreases from top to bottom in a group.


ELECTRONEGATIVITY: “The relative tendency of an atom in a molecule to attract the shared pair of electrons towards itself is termed as its electro- negativity.”



(i) In period- The electro-negativity increases from left to right in a period.

(ii) In group- The electro-negativity decreases from top to bottom in a group.


ELECTRO-NEGATIVE OR NON- METALLIC CHARACTERS: the tendency of an element to accept electrons to form an anion is called its non-metallic or electronegative character. The elements having high electro-negativity have higher tendency to gain electrons and forms anion. So, the elements in the

upper right hand portion of the periodic table are electro-negative or non-metallic in nature.



PERIODICITY IN GROUP: The solubility of alkali metal carbonates and bicarbonates in water increases down the group (From Lithium to Caesium).



PERIODICITY IN GROUP: The solubility of alkaline earth metal hydroxide and sulphates in water increases down the group (From Beryllium to Barium).




PERIODICITY IN GROUP: The basic strength of alkaline earth metal hydroxide in water increases down the group (From Beryllium to Barium), i.e., Be(OH)2 < Mg(OH)2 < Ca(OH)2 < Sr(OH)2 <Ba(OH)2 Basic strength increases



Except lithium carbonate, (Li2CO3), the carbonates of all other alkali metals are stable towards heat, i.e., carbonates of alkali metals (except Li2CO3) do not decompose on heating. Li2CO3 decomposes on heating to give lithium oxide (Li2CO3).

The carbonates of alkaline earth metals are relatively less stable. On heating, they decomposeto give corresponding oxide and CO2 gas. The decomposition temperature for alkaline earth metal carbonates increases as we go down the group.
