www.examrace.com

## When heat energy is supplied to alkali metal

atom or ion in salt, the electronic excitation
occurs in which electron jumps to higher
energy level. When this excited electron deexcites to ground state, the energy is
emitted in the form of electromagnetic
radiation which lies in visible region thereby
imparting colour to the flame. The colour
of flame depends upon the wavelength of
radiation emitted e.g., yellow D-line of Naspectra arises from 3s 1 -7 3p 1 transition.

Only coloured salts will form coloured metal
metaborates.
BF3 is triangular planar and B2H is a dimer
of triangular planar molecu)e (BH 3),
therefore, both of these have zero dipole
moment. NH 3 and NF3 , on the other hand
have pyramidal structures and thus have
dipole moments.

## In NH3, the dipole moments of the three

N-H bOnds reinforce the dipole moment due
to lone pair of electrons but in NF 3, the
dipole moments of the three N-F oonds
oppose the dipole moment due to lone pair
of electrons. As a result, dipole moment of
NH3 ( J.l= 1.46 D) is higher than that ofNF3
( J.l= 0.24 D).

## Due to the poor shielding (screening) effect

of d-electrons in case of Ga, the valence
electrons are attracted more strongly and
hence, the size is not increased.
