2. Why are compounds more stable than towards oxidation to their +3 state?

3. Explain briefly how +2 state becomes more and more stable in the first half of the first row transition elements with increasing atomic number?

4. To what extent do the electronic configurations decide the stability of oxidation states in the first series of the transition elements? Illustrate your answer with examples.

5. What may be the stable oxidation state of the transition element with the following d electron configurations in the ground state of their atoms: and ?

6. Name the oxometal anions of the first series of the transition metals in which the metal exhibits the oxidation state equal to its group number.

7. What is lanthanoid contraction? What are the consequences of lanthanoid contraction?

8. What are the characteristics of the transition elements and why are they called transition elements? Which of the d-block elements may not be regarded as the transition elements?

9. In what way is the electronic configuration of the transition elements different from that of the non-transition elements?

10. What are the different oxidation states exhibited by the lanthanoids?

11. Explain giving reasons:

(i) Transition metals and many of their compounds show paramagnetic behaviour.

(ii) The enthalpies of atomisation of the transition metals are high.

(iii) The transition metals generally form coloured compounds.

(iv) Transition metals and their many compounds act as good catalyst.

12. What are interstitial compounds? Why are such compounds well known for transition metals?

13. How is the variability in oxidation states of transition metals different from that of the non-transition metals? Illustrate with examples.
