As compared with CO and O2, CS and S2 are very unstable molecules. Give an explanation based on the relative abilities of the sulfur and oxygen atoms to form bonds.
Chapter 10 Outline Gases Gaseous substances may have different chemical properties, but they behave similarly as far as their physical properties are concerned (Ex.: Air) 10.1: Characteristics of Gases O 2 N 2 H 2 F2, C2 all are gases at ordinary temperatures and pressures The noble gases are all monatomic Gases at standard temperature and pressure are composed of all nonmetallic elements Vapors – gaseous form of compounds that are liquids or gases under ordinary conditions (Ex.: H 2) Properties of gases: o Expand to the volume of container o Highly compressible- pressure applied to gases decreases the volume that gas will occupy o Fo
