B) What do you infer from the fact that there is no similar elongation in NaCN which also crystallizes with a NaCl lattice? 2), and recycling of Al cans necessarily means recovery of Mg. The graph below shows the variation in total consumption of primary Mg in the US from 1960 to 2000, and the increasing trend towards recovering the metal. (a) Write down, in order, the names and symbols of the metals in group 2; check your answer by reference to the first page of this chapter. Which metals are classed as alkaline earth metals?

3. The equation you derived in part (2) applies only to a particle moving in a space in which the potential energy, V, is constant, and the particle can be regarded as possessing only kinetic energy, KE. If the potential energy of the particle does vary, the total energy, E ¼ KE þ V. Using this information and your answers to parts (1) and (2), derive the Schro¨dinger equation (stated on p. 8) for a particle in a one-dimensional box. number l is called the orbital quantum number and has allowed values of 0; 1; 2 .

N ¼ 2, l ¼ 0, ml ¼ 0 ] 4. Which quantum number distinguishes the 3s and 5s atomic orbitals? [Ans. n ] Degenerate orbitals possess the same energy. Now consider the consequence on these orbital types of the quantum number ml . 2. 6 shows plots of R(r) against r for the 2p, 3p, 4p and 3d atomic orbitals; the nucleus is at r ¼ 0. 2, we see that the radial parts of the wavefunctions decay exponentially as r increases, but the decay is slower for n ¼ 2 than for n ¼ 1. This means that the likelihood of the electron being further from the nucleus increases as n increases.
