Question 6 (0.04 points)
Read procedure page for electrical conductivity experiment. Which of the following
statement is correct?
A) Sugar (C12H22011) for sure will conduct electricity because it is a covalent
B) Even if alumina is insoluble in water. I will still test its conductivity.
© NaCl will conduct electricity because it is an ionic compound and it dissolves
a, sugar can’t conduct electricity
b, you don’t want to conduct electricity with something wet
salt can be a conductor of electricity
alkaline metals are lithium, sodium, rubidium, potassium, cesium and francium.
alkali metals have electronegativity from 0.7 to 1, lowest in periodic table of elements, which means that alkali metals (i group in periodic table) has positive oxidation number in compounds.
electronegativity is a chemical property that describes the tendency of an atom to attract a shared pair of electrons towards itself.
alkaline metals (far left in main group) have lowest ionizations energy and easy remove valence electrons,
for example, potassium is the alkali metal and has a single valence electron in the outer electron shell.
electron configuration of potassium is: ₁₉k 1s²2s²2p⁶3s²3p⁶4s¹.
they can not exist alone in nature, because they are very reactive.
