About This Chapter
Chemistry of p-Block Elements- Chapter Summary
The lessons in this chapter will help you gain a working knowledge of the p-Block elements. Topics you will learn about in this chapter includes information on noble gases and halogens. You will have the chance to go over the following goals:
- Learn about common 6A property elements
- Understand the uses of 7A elements
- Review the properties of noble gases
- Explore the structure of hydrogen peroxide
- Provide examples of acidic solutions
- Recall the structure and properties of the ozone
- Explain the dangers of the thinning of the ozone layer
After reviewing our lessons, you can assess your understanding with the lesson quizzes. These quizzes are multiple-choice and will give you immediate feedback on your comprehension of the material. Having this immediate feedback is beneficial because you will quickly identify what your weak areas are and what you need to review further.
1. Chalcogens (Group 6A Elements): Definition & Properties
Some can kill you, some are useful, and one is vital to your survival. Welcome to the chalcogens! This lesson will list common properties, and will then share some uses and characteristics of these diverse Group 6A elements.
2. Halogens (Group 7A Elements): Definition & Properties
The halogens are a group of non-metals that share several properties. This lesson will examine these properties and will also look at the many uses of these group 7A elements.
3. Noble Gases (Group 8A Elements): Definition & Properties
The noble gases are an inert group of elements with some fun and fascinating uses. This lesson will explore the properties that the noble gases share and will look at some of their uses.
4. Hydrogen Peroxide: Preparation, Properties & Structure
Hydrogen peroxide is a bubbly, antimicrobial agent. In this lesson, we will learn how it is used, what its physical and chemical properties are, and how it is prepared.
5. Acidic Solutions: Properties & Examples
Acidic solutions are found everywhere in the natural world and are an important part of our everyday lives. This lesson defines acidic solutions and discusses their fundamental properties. Several examples of acidic solutions from the natural world and industry are also provided.
6. Ozone: Formula, Structure & Properties
Ozone is not solely formed in the earth's atmosphere. It can also be prepared and generated in the laboratory. Use this lesson to discover why a scientist might be interested in creating and using ozone. Also, learn about the structure, formula, and properties of ozone.
7. The Ozone Layer: Importance and the Harmful Effects of Thinning
In this lesson, you will learn the importance of the ozone layer and how it is depleted. You will also study the research and policy that has been instrumental in its recovery.
