The Periodic Table is a table of elements arranged in order of atomic number. The elements are classified into blocks. 10 (a) (i) State what is meant by the term atomic number.[1] (ii) Complete the full electron configuration for a titanium atom. 1s2[1] (iii) Identify the seventh element in the fourth period. State which block this element is in. elementblock[1] (b) The figure below shows the boiling points of four hydrides of Group 6 elements. 100 H2O boiling point / C H2Te H2Se H2S 100 (i) Explain, with the aid of a diagram, the intermolecular forces in H2O that lead to the relatively high boiling point of H2O.[3]OCR 2009<br />
 (ii) Suggest why H2S has a much lower boiling point than H2O. 11[1] (c) The boiling points of some Group 7 elements are shown below. Group 7 element boiling point / C chlorine bromine iodine 35 59 184 Explain why the halogens show this trend in boiling points. In your answer, you should use appropriate technical terms, spelt correctly.[3] TURN OVER FOR QUESTION 5(d)OCR 2009 Turn over<br />
 (d) During the extraction of bromine industrially, chlorine is bubbled through a solution of bromide ions. A student thought this principle would also work for extracting iodine and carried out the experiment below. 12 Stage 1 The student bubbled some chlorine through an aqueous solution of potassium iodide. Stage 2 The student added an organic solvent and shook the mixture. (i) What would the student see at stage 1?[1] (ii) Name the products and write an ionic equation for the reaction in stage 1. names of products:ionic equation:[2] (iii) Why does the reaction in stage 1 occur?[1] (iv) What would the student see at stage 2?[1] [Total: 15] END OF QUESTION PAPER Copyright Information OCR is committed to seeking permission to reproduce all third-party content that it uses in its assessment materials.
