Q.48:- What are Dobereiner’s triads? Name two such triads.

 

Answer:-
Dobereiner arranged certain elements with similar properties in groups of three in such a way that the atomic mass of the middle element was nearly the same as the average atomic masses of the first and third elements.
For example:
Triad: lithium sodium potassium
Atomic mass: 7 23 39
Atomic mass of Na =(39+7)/2= 23
Triad: Chlorine Bromine Iodine
Atomic mass: 35.5 80 127
Atomic mass of Br =127 + 35.5/2 = 81.25
