Unformatted text preview: nanni (arn437) – HW 06 Bonding – vanden bout – (50985) 1 This print-out should have 33 questions. Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page – find all choices before answering. 001 10.0 points Let X be a hypothetical element. Which of the following would be largest? 1. X- 2. X 2+ 3. X + 4. X 5. X 2- correct Explanation: X 2- would be largest as it has 2 more electrons than protons, and the protons here would be at the greatest disadvantage when trying to draw the electrons towards the nu- cleus. 002 10.0 points If the following crystallize in the same type of structure, which has the lowest lattice energy? 1. CaO 2. BaS correct 3. BaO 4. SrS 5. SrO Explanation: Lowest charge densities due to larger size. 003 10.0 points Which pair of elements is most likely to form an ionic compound? 1. oxygen and chlorine 2. magnesium and fluorine correct 3. sodium and aluminum 4. nitrogen and sulfur Explanation: Mg is a metal and F is a nonmetal. N and S are both nonmetals. O and Cl are both nonmetals. Na and Al are both metals. 004 10.0 points Compounds which are characterized as cova- lent are generally made up of elements found in which part of the Periodic Table? 1. upper right correct 2. lower left 3. left and right 4. upper left Explanation: Covalent compounds are formed from ele- ments with small Δ E N , or nonmetal elements. These are found in the upper right corner of the periodic table. Very metallic elements are found in the lower left corner of the periodic table. 005 10.0 points Which is the correct order of increasing bond strength? 1. single, double, triple correct 2. single, triple, double 3. double, triple, single 4. triple, double, single 5. double, single, triple Explanation: More energy is required to break a triple bond than a double bond, and more energy for a double bond than a single bond. 006 10.0 points nanni (arn437) – HW 06 Bonding – vanden bout – (50985) 2 Which do you predict to have the strongest CN bond? 1. NH 2 CH 3 2. HCN correct 3. All are equal 4. NHCH 2 Explanation: The bond orders as determined by drawing the Lewis structures are 2 for NHCH 2 , 1 for NH 2 CH 3 , and 3 for HCN; therefore HCN will have the greatest bond strength. 007 10.0 points Which of the following contains only covalent bonding and no ionic bonding? 1. CCl 4 correct 2. NaOH 3. Na 2 SO 4 4. Ca(NO 3 ) 2 5. NaCl Explanation: In NaCl, Na is a metal, and Cl is a non- metal. An ionic bond would be expected to form in this compound. In Na 2 SO 4 , Ca(NO 3 ) 2 , and NaOH, a polyatomic ion is present. While covalent bonds attach the atoms within the polyatomic ion, ionic bonds connect these polyatomic ions to their metal atoms. Only CCl 4 , which contains 4 C Cl bonds (which involve bonding between two nonmetallic elements), contains only covalent bonds....
