Give the name and symbol of each element having the valence configuration [noble gas] ns2np1.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: Give the name and symbol of elements having the valence configuration [noble gas]ns2np1.

Concept introduction: Noble gases are group of elements with very low chemical reactivity. The six noble gas elements that have been isolated are:

  • Helium
  • Neon
  • Argon
  • Krypton
  • Xenon
  • Radon

The atomic number of Helium is 2 and symbol is He, Neon is 10 and symbol is Ne, Argon is 18 and symbol is Ar, Krypton is 36 and symbol is Kr, Xenon is 54 and symbol is Xe, Radon is 86 and symbol is Rn.

The elements having the electronic configuration of [noble gas]ns2np1 have three valence electrons in their outermost shell. Such elements belong to group 3A of periodic table and lose these three electrons to gain noble gas configuration. Group 3A is boron family and the other elements of this group are aluminium, gallium, indium and thallium.

Explanation

The elements having electronic configuration [noble gas]ns2np1 have three valence electrons in its outermost shell. Thus, they belong to group 3A of the periodic table.

Boron has an atomic number of 5 and the nearest noble gas, helium has an atomic number of 2. Thus, the valence configuration of boron is [He]2s22p1.

Aluminium has an atomic number of 13 and the nearest noble gas, neon has an atomic number of 10. Thus, the valence configuration of aluminium is [Ne]3s23p1.

Gallium has an atomic number of 31 and the nearest noble gas, argon has an atomic number of 18. Thus, the valence configuration of gallium is [Ar]3d104s24p1.

Indium has an atomic number of 49 and the nearest noble gas, krypton has an atomic number of 36
