Problem 6

Explain why a graph of ionization energy versus atomic number (across a row) is not linear. Where are the exceptions? Why are there exceptions?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Resonance structures Molecules and ions with more than one distinct but equivalent (by rotation or reflection etc.) Lewis structures can occur. The real structure is an average of these different resonance forms Failures of the Lewis model Anumber of molecules with odd numbers of electrons exist (no octet) e.g. NO An atom may not have enough electrons to complete its octet without having ridiculous formal charges e.g. BF 3 Acentral atom may clearly have more than 8 electrons e.g. SF 6 O is paramagnetic!! 2 VSEPR Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion theory is a useful tool for predicting the geometrical structures of main group compounds Based on the idea that pairs (or groups) of
