Problem 14

If an element is a reactant or product in a chemical reaction, the reaction must be an oxidationreduction reaction. Why is this true?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

periodicity = rises and falls in trends period = row across group = columns (up & down) atomic radii (size of atom) = across a period, size decreases down a group , size increases (more shells) across a period, # of protons in nucleus "pulls" the e- closer to nucleus An anion (neg) is always larger than its neutral counter part An cation (pos) is always larger than its neutral counter part Paramagnetic = where there is at least one unpaired e- Diamagnetic = all e- are paired .. I.e. Group 1(s2 filled), noble gases(p6filled) Metals - tend to make cations (lose electrons) like to oxidize = good reducing agents Non metals - tend to make anions (gains electrons like to reduce =
