Textbook Problem

Identify the following as either chemical or physical properties of most transition metals:

(a) can be oxidized.

(b) have unpaired electrons (paramagnetism).

(c) solids at 25 °C.

(d) metallic luster.

(e) Compounds of the elements are often colored.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The physical and chemical properties of the transition metal elements should be identified.

Concept introduction:

The groups 3 to 12 on the periodic table (d-block of the periodic table) are called Transition metal elements. The lanthanide and actinide series are also considered as inner transition metals.

  • Physical properties are those that can observe or measure.

    Physical properties of the elements are color, melting point, boiling point, mass, volume, density, length and shape.

  • Chemical properties are those that describe how a substance reacts or change into a new substance and based on the reactivity, for example the substance reacts with acid, base, air, water and other chemicals.
Explanation

Can be oxidized is chemical properties. So once the substance is oxidized a new product is formed and is based on the reactivity.

Have unpaired electrons (paramagneti
