MCQ (Single Correct Answer)
The maximum number of 90° angles between bond pair of electrons is observed in
A
dsp3 hybridization
B
sp3d2 hybridization
C
dsp2 hybridization
D
sp3d hybridization

Explanation



Here eight 90o angles between bond pair and bond pair. Those angles are $$\angle $$1M2, $$\angle $$2M3, $$\angle $$3M4, $$\angle $$4M1, $$\angle $$5M1, $$\angle $$5M2, $$\angle $$5M3, $$\angle $$5M4.

Here twelve 90o angles between bond pair and bond pair. Those angles are $$\angle $$1M2, $$\angle $$2M3, $$\angle $$3M4, $$\angle $$4M1, $$\angle $$5M1, $$\angle $$5M2, $$\angle $$5M3, $$\angle $$5M4, $$\angle $$6M1, $$\angle $$6M2, $$\angle $$6M3, $$\angle $$6M4.

Here four 90o angles between bond pair and bond pair. Those angles are $$\angle $$1M2, $$\angle $$2M3, $$\angle $$3M4, $$\angle $$4M1.

Here six 90o angles between bond pair and bond pair. Those angles are $$\angle $$1M3, $$\angle $$1M4, $$\angle $$1M5, $$\angle $$2M3, $$\angle $$2M4, $$\angle $$2M5.

MCQ (Single Correct Answer)
Which one of the following has the regular tetrahedral structure?
(Atomic nos : B = 5, S = 16, Ni = 28, Xe = 54)
A
XeF4
B
[Ni(CN)4]2-
C
$$BF_4^-$$
D
SF4

Explanation

Regular Tetrahedral structure is possible in sp3 hybridization where central atom has 4 bond pair and no lone pair.

(a)   XeF4  is sp3d2 hybridised and structure is square planar.



(b)   [Ni(CN)4]$$-$$2 is coordinate compound and oxidation number of Ni is +2.

Electronic configuration of Ni+2 is $$=$$ [Ar]3d8



But because of CN$$-$$ ion which is a strong field ligand , it can perform pairing of electron.



And the structure of dsp2 hybridization is square planar.



(C) $$\,\,\,\,$$ BF$$_4^ - $$, 4 bond pair present so angle is 109o 28' and sp3 hybridised. So structure is regular tetrahedral.



(d)   

SF4 is sp3d hybridised and structure is see-saw.

MCQ (Single Correct Answer)
The states of hybridization of boron and oxygen atoms in boric acid (H3BO3) are respectively
A
sp2 and sp2
B
sp3 and sp3
C
sp3 and sp2
D
sp2 and sp3

Explanation

Structure of  H3BO3  is



Here Boron has 3 sigma bond. So it is sp2 hybridised.

And oxygen has two sigma bond and two lone pair. So it sp3 hybridised.

MCQ (Single Correct Answer)
The bond order in NO is 2.5 while that in NO+ is 3. Which of the following statements is true for these two species?
A
Bond length in NO+ is greater than in NO
B
Bond length is unpredictable
C
Bond length in NO+ in equal to that in NO
D
Bond length in NO is greater than in NO+

Explanation

Molecular orbital configuration of NO (15 electrons) is

$${\sigma _{1{s^2}}}\,\sigma _{1{s^2}}^ * \,{\sigma _{2{s^2}}}\,\sigma _{2{s^2}}^ * \,{\sigma _{2p_z^2}}\,{\pi _{2p_x^2}}\, = \,{\pi _{2p_y^2}}\,\pi _{2p_x^1}^ * \, = \,\pi _{2p_y^o}^ * $$

$$\therefore\,\,\,\,$$ Nb = 10

Na = 5

$$\therefore\,\,\,\,$$ BO = $${1 \over 2}\left[ {10 - 5} \right]$$ = 2.5

Similarly Molecular orbital configuration of NO+ (14 electrons) is

$${\sigma _{1{s^2}}}\,\sigma _{1{s^2}}^ * \,{\sigma _{2{s^2}}}\,\sigma _{2{s^2}}^ * \,{\sigma _{2p_z^2}}\,{\pi _{2p_x^2}}\, = \,{\pi _{2p_y^2}}\,$$

$$\therefore\,\,\,\,$$ Nb = 10

Na = 4

$$\therefore\,\,\,\,$$ BO = $${1 \over 2}\left[ {10 - 4} \right]$$ = 3

Note :
(2) $$\,\,\,\,$$ Bond length $$ \propto $$ $${1 \over {Bond\,\,order}}$$

So, bond length in NO > NO+
