Group 7 metals physical properties (3)

- Low melting and boiling points

- Exist as diatomic molecules

- Boiling pt increases as you go down the group

Describe the reactivity of Group 7 metals

- Reactivity decreases as you go down the group

- Atomic radii increases

- Shielding increases

- The attraction between the nucleus and the outer electrons decreases

- Ability to gain an electron decreases to form a halide ion.

Why does the boiling point increase as you go down the group?

- The number of electrons increases

- The number of van der Waal's forces increases

- Hence, more energy is required to break the bonds as you go down the group.

What is a Displacement Reaction?

A reaction in which the more reactive element displaces the less reactive element and forms an aqueous solution with the latter's ions.

Colour of Chlorine in Water and Cyclohexane

Pale - green (in both)

Colour of Bromine in Water and Cyclohexane

Orange (in both)

Colour of Iodine in Water and Cyclohexane

- Water: Brown

- Cyclohexane: Purple
