Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Definition of metallic bond.

    • A.

      Weak electrostatic attraction between the negatively charged anion and negatively charged ‘sea’ of electrons

    • B.

      Weak electrostatic attraction between the positively charged cation and negatively charged anion

    • C.

      Strong electrostatic attraction between the positively charged cation and negatively charged anion

    • D.

      Strong electrostatic attraction between the positively charged cation and negatively charged ‘sea’ of electrons

    Correct Answer
    D. Strong electrostatic attraction between the positively charged cation and negatively charged ‘sea’ of electrons
    Explanation
    · Every metal atom would lose its valence electrons to gain electronic configuration of a noble gas

    · The metal atom would lose its valence electrons to the negatively charged ‘sea’ of electrons

    · The lattice is held together by the strong electrostatic attraction between the positively charged cation and the negatively charged ‘sea’ of electrons

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    How is a metal formed? (Simple xD)

    • A.

      · Every metal atom would lose its valence electrons to gain electronic configuration of a noble gas · The metal atom would lose its valence electrons to the negatively charged ‘sea’ of electrons · The lattice is held together by the strong electrostatic attraction between the positively charged cation and the negatively charged ‘sea’ of electrons

    • B.

      It just forms. )):

    Correct Answer
    A. · Every metal atom would lose its valence electrons to gain electronic configuration of a noble gas · The metal atom would lose its valence electrons to the negatively charged ‘sea’ of electrons · The lattice is held together by the strong electrostatic attraction between the positively charged cation and the negatively charged ‘sea’ of electrons
    Explanation
    When a metal is formed, the metal atoms lose their valence electrons in order to achieve a stable electronic configuration similar to that of a noble gas. This process allows the metal atoms to become positively charged cations. The valence electrons that are lost form a "sea" of negatively charged electrons surrounding the cations. The lattice structure of the metal is held together by the strong electrostatic attraction between the positively charged cations and the negatively charged sea of electrons. This arrangement creates a stable and solid metal structure.

  • 3. 

    Can metals conduct electricity in molten state?

    • A.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    • C.

      Sometimes

    Correct Answer
    A. Yes
    Explanation
    In Molten(liquid) and Solid state, metals are able to conduct electricity due to the presence of mobile electrons which can flow under applied potential difference.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Define Ionic Bonding.

    • A.

      Sharing of electrons from non-metallic elements in order of achieve stable electronic configuration of a noble gas

    • B.

      Mixture of cations and anions

    • C.

      Transfer of electrons from metallic element to non-metallic element in order of achieve stable electronic configuration of a noble gas

    Correct Answer
    C. Transfer of electrons from metallic element to non-metallic element in order of achieve stable electronic configuration of a noble gas
    Explanation
    Metals have a tendency to lose electrons (Cat Ion)
    Non-Metals have a tendency to gain electrons (An Ion)

  • 5. 

    Can ionic compunds conduct electricty in molten state?

    • A.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    Correct Answer
    A. Yes
    Explanation
    When melted, heat energy supplied overcomes some of the electrostatic attraction between the oppositely charged ions and hence the ions become mobile. Presence of mobile ions enable the ionic compound to conduct electricity in molten state.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Can ionic compunds conduct electricty in aqueous state?

    • A.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    Correct Answer
    A. Yes
    Explanation
    When dissolves in water, Ionic compound dissociates to form mobile ions, Presence of mobile ions enable the ionic compound to conduct electricity in aqueous state.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Can ionic compunds conduct electricty in solid state?

    • A.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    Correct Answer
    B. No
    Explanation
    The ions are fixed in position by the strong electrostatic attraction between the oppositely charged ions. Hence there are no mobile ions. Absence of mobile ions result a ionic compound to be unable to conduct electricity in Solid state.
