Q. 1. Give chemical reaction in support of the statement that all the bonds in PCI5 molecule are not equivalent.

Ans. Due to greater bond pair-bond pair repulsions, the two axial P — Cl bonds are less stable than the three equatorial P — Cl bonds. It is because of this reason that when PC15 is heated, the less stable axial bonds are Broken to form Cl2. 


Q. 2. The tendency for catenation decreases down the group 14. Or Why carbon shows catenation but silicon does not 

Ans. As we move down the group 14, the atomic size increases and hence the strength of M—M bond decreases steadily. Consequently the tendency for catenation decreases down the group. 

Q. 3. PCI5 is known but NC15 is not known. Explain. 

Ans. Electronic configuration of P is 1s2 2s2 2p6 3s2 3px1 3py1 3pz1 . Thus phosphorus has empty 3d orbitals in which the elecron of the 3s-orbital can be excited but nitrogen has no d-orbitals as its electronic configuration is 1s2 2s2 2px1 2py1 2pz1. 

Q. 4. Why molecular nitrogen is not reactive ? 

Ans. The bond dissociation energy for the triple bond in N = N is very high because of small size of N-atoms and hence small internuclear distance.
