Ans: True

2. Isotopes of an element have different atomic numbers
Ans: False – They have different mass numbers.

3. Electrons have negligible mass and charge.
Ans: True (but they have a negative charge).

4. Smaller the size of the orbit, the lower is the energy of the orbit.
Ans: True

5. The maximum number of electrons in L Shell is 10
Ans: False – the maximum number of electrons in L shell is 8.

2 1
1 0 1 1


Atomic Number Mass Number Number of Neutrons Number of Protons Number of Electrons Number of the Element
9 19 10 9 9 Fluorine
16 32 16 16 16 Sulphur
12 24 12 12 12 Magnesium
1 2 1 1 1 Deuterium
1 1 0 1 1 Protium

VI. Arrange the following in the increasing order of atomic number:

Calcium, Silicon, Boron, Magnesium, Oxygen, Helium, Neon, Sulphur, Fluorine, and Sodium
Ans: Helium < Boron < Oxygen < Fluorine < Neon < Sodium < Magnesium < Silicon < Sulphur < Calcium

VII. Short answer:

1. Name an element with the same number of electrons in its first and second shells.
Ans: Beryllium (2,2)

2. Write the electronic configuration of K+ and Cl-
Ans: The electronic configuration of K+ is (2,8,8)
The electronic configuration of Cl- is (2,8,8) So, they are Iso-electronic.

3. Compare the charge and mass of protons and electrons.

Ans: Particle Charge Mass
Proton 1.602 x 10-19C 1.672 x 10-24g
Electron 1.602 x 10-19C 9.108 x10-24g

4. For an atom ‘X’, K, L, and M shells are completely filled. How many electrons will be present in it?
Ans: Total number of electrons = K + L +M

= 2+8+18=28

28 S2 IS2 2P6 3S2 w3inm een.com P6 3d10 K L M

5. Ca2+ has completely filled the outer shell. Justify your answer.
Ans: Ca has electronic configuration 2,8,8,2. After losing 2 c-s it becomes 2,8,2 (completely filled outer shell.

Ca -2e  Ca2+
2,8,8,2 2,8,8 (completely filled)

VIII. Short answer:

1. State the law of multiple proportions.
Ans: When two elements A and B combine together to form more than one compound, then masses of A which separately combine with a fixed mass of B are in a simple ratio.
