In this course we will complete our chapter of Class 12 Inorganic Chemistry i.e. P Block Elements. Its one of the most important chapters of Inorganic chemistry and most of the students try to learn lot of reactions involved in this chapter, but in this course i will teach you a super trick, using which you can easily predict products of any reaction.
We will complete all topics from CBSE point of view as well as from entrance exam point of view i.e JEE Mains and Advanced, NEET, BITSAT
What are the p-Block Elements?
P block elements are those in which the last electron enters any of the three p-orbitals of their respective shells. Since a p-subshell has three degenerate p-orbitals each of which can accommodate two electrons, therefore in all there are six groups of p-block elements.
P block elements are shiny and usually a good conductor of electricity and heat as they have a tendency to lose an electron. You will find some amazing properties of elements in a P-block element like gallium. It’s a metal that can melt in the palm of your hand. Silicon is also one of the most important metalloids of the p-block group as it is an important component of glass.
In this section, we will study the elements of P-block and their properties.
