Trends in the general properties

Description In this video, we will discuss the trends in the general properties of transition elements like physical properties such as melting and boiling points, enthalpies of atomisation, atomic/ionic radius, and density. Timestamps 00:16 - Physical properties of transition elements. 00:45 - High melting points of transition elements. 02:13 - Exception in the MP trend. 02:50 - Comparison of MPs in 3d, 4d and 5d series. 03:33 - Enthalpies of atomisation 04:13 - Trends in the atomic size 05:35 - Comparing the atomic sizes in 3d, 4d and 5d series. 06:16 - Lanthanide contraction 6:40 - Density of transition metals Master the concept of “Trends in the general properties” through practice exercises and videos - https://www.khanacademy.org/science/class-12-chemistry-india/x6a5fb67b43bb54b9:the-d-block-elements#x6a5fb67b43bb54b9:properties-of-transition-metals Check out more videos and exercises on “The d-block elements” - https://www.khanacademy.org/science/class-12-chemistry-india/x6a5fb67b43bb54b9:the-d-block-elements?lang=en To get you fully ready for your exam and help you fall in love with “chemistry”, find the complete bank of exercises and videos for “class 12 and chemistry” here - https://www.khanacademy.org/science/class-12-chemistry-india?lang=en .
