Introduction to group-18 elements

In this video, we will discuss the trends in the atomic properties of group-18 elements. We will also discuss its effects on physical properties such as melting and boiling points and also their chemical reactivity. Timestamps 00:16 - What are the group 18 elements? 1:56 - Trends in the ionisation enthalpies of group-18 elements. 2:25 - Electron gain enthalpies of group 18 vs group 17. 4:00 - Atomic radius of group-18 elements. 4:58 - Why noble gases have high melting and boiling points? 5:43 - Chemical reactivity of group-18 elements.
