Cl2, dissolves and reacts slightly. pH2,- acidic Reactions of period 3 chlorides with water Physical Properties First Ionization Energy The energy required to remove one electron from each atom in one mole of gaseous atoms under standard conditions. Electronegativity A measure of the attraction of an atom in a molecule for the electron pair in the covalent bond of which it is a part. Electronegativity increases across a period. This is because of the increase in nuclear charge across the period. Atomic radius decreases across a period. This is basically due to the increase in nuclear charge across the period, though there is no significant change in shielding. Bonding and Reaction with water
in the period 3 oxides Trends Across Period 3 The general trend is that the first ionisation energy increases across period 3 due to increase in nuclear charge across the period. The variation of atomic radius across period 3. The variation of ionic radius across the period is not a clear cut trend, as the type of ion changes from one side to the other. Thus positive ions are formed on the left hand side of the period and negative ions on the right. Structure Electronegativity (the relative tendency shown by an atom to attract electrons to itself) increases across the Period from left to right.

The number of protons in the nucleus.

As you go from sodium to chlorine, the number of protons steadily increases and so attracts the bonding pair more closely. Chemical Properties Across Period 3 1. Basic oxides (ionic bond) react with water to produce alkaline solution.
e.g NaO + H2O --> 2NaOH
MgO + H2O --> Mg(OH)2 [ Mg has high charge of ions and is
not very soluble in water. 2. Amphoteric Oxide does not react with water but shows its property when it reacts with bases and acids to form salt.
e.g. With acid : Al2O3 + 6H ---> 2Al +3H2O
With alkali : Al2O3 + 2OH + 3H2O --> 2Al(OH)4 *ionic molecule, when reacts with water, will produce alkaline solution - 3+ + - - The End 3. Acidic oxide (covalent molecule) reacts with water to form acidic solution.
E.g SO3 (g) + H2O (l) ---> H2SO4 (aq)
P4O10 (s) + 6H2O (l) ---> 4H3PO4 (aq)
