Textbook Problem

Identity among the transition metals:

(a) the most dense element.

(b) the metal with the lowest melting point.

(c) a radioactive d-block element.

(d) an essential element in the human body.

(a)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The most dense element among the transition metals has to 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.

Explanation

Considering all the elements among the transition metals, the most dense of the transition metal is Osmium...

(b)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The metal with lowest melting point among the transition metals has to 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.

(c)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The radioactive d-block element has to 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.

(d)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The essential element in the human body among the transition metals has to 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.
