Q.49:- Give the electronic configuration of the transition elements. Write their four important characteristics.

 

 

Answer:-
The d-block elements are known as transition elements.
Electronic configuration =(n – 1) d1-10 ns1 -2
Characteristics of d-block elements:



  • They show variable oxidation states.
  • Their compounds are generally paramagnetic in nature.
  • Most of the transition elements form coloured compounds.
  • They are all metals with high melting and boiling points.
