Boron

Hund's rule boron ambiguity?

Boron has the configuration with two filled shells and one outer electron. The outer electron has L=1, S=1/2, so J = 3/2 or 1/2. Hund's rules imply the term is the ground state term as in hydrogen.

What are facts about the element boron?

== Some people think Boron in boring from just looking at the name, but if Boron wasnt present in the body, your bones would break apart.
After being mixed with other elements and made into Boron Carbide, it's commonly used in ballistic jackets and tank armor.

Is boron oxide acidic or basic?

Boron oxide, B2O3, is acidic. It reacts slowly with water to form boric acid. When fused, (molten) it reacts readily with metal oxides to form borates.

Who founded the atom?

The atom was not found or discovered. The atom was conceptualized by thinking people who reasoned that if a given thing, whatever it might be, is divided and then divided again continuously, a point is reached where it can no longer be divided. The smallest thing left that cannot be further divided is an atom. Early records from India speak to the idea being extant in the 6th century BC, and later at about half a century BC the Greeks recorded the idea. And it was the Greeks who called this indivisible unit an atom, the term we use today. No one individual is identified as the person to come up with the idea. As an aside, the effects of moving air were observed for thousands of years after atoms were thought of. It was surmised that small things were at work, but the details were elusive. It would have to wait until about 1803 before John Dalton, an early pioneer in chemistry, began to nail the idea down with empirical data. It took about another century for some pioneers in physics (namely J.J. Thompson, Ernest Rutherford and Niels Bohr) to come up with a correct model.

Why does boron form a tripositive ion?

Boron has an electronic configuration of 1s22s22p1 (it has 5 electrons). In order to reach the stable electron configuration of a noble gas with a completely filled valence shell, boron atom has to lose 3 electrons to obtain a stable duplet structure (i.e. 2 electrons in its first electron shell). After losing 3 electrons, the boron atom forms a B3+ ion, or a so-called tripositive ion.

How do you count the electrons in a Lewis dot structure?

Count the electrons in the following way: -- each lone pair counts as 2 electrons -- each single bond counts as 2 electrons -- each double bound counts as 4 electrons -- each triple bond counts as 6 electons. -- if it an ion with a positive charge, subtract 1 electron for each charge from the total (after counting all the bonds and lone pairs) -- if it an ion with a negative charge, add 1 electron for each charge to the total (after counting all the bonds and lone pairs) Add up all the contributions for the total number of electrons!

How many electrons does boron have?

Five. The Atomic Number of Boron is 5 so it has five protons and 5 electrons. The Mass number of Boron is 11. Mass minus atomic number = number of neutrons = 6. BORON:Electrons = 5

Protons = 5

Neutrons = 6

What is boron used for?

The most common form of boron is the compound borax, used for a variety of purposes ranging from cleaning and antiseptics to making glass and enamel. There is a new procedure called boron neutron capture therapy (BNCT) to target cancer cells. Boron is attracted to cancer cells. It is also used in glass and ceramics and is a essential plant nutrient. In the nuclear power industry, boron is useful to absorb thermal neutrons very strongly, so it is used in control rods and sometimes as a soluble insect poison.

Is hydrogen a metal nonmetal or metalloid?

In the Scientific Community, Hydrogen is accepted as a non-metal. One of the most common reason's for this is because Hydrogen is a gas (at room temperature). A statement that can invalidate this is, Mercury is a metal, but is a liquid (at room temperature). Experiments that justify Hydrogen's placement amongst the Alkali Metals include very low temperatures and very high pressures, at which Hydrogen acts like a metal, being more electrically and thermally conductive than silver. Other facts that propose Hydrogen as a metal are fairly simple. All alkali metals react violently with Oxygen, forming an oxide, or rust. Hydrogen can be burned with Oxygen, to create Hydrogen-Oxide (Water, Hydrogen Peroxide, etc). To support this even further, rust is a crystal. The reason why water expands when frozen is because it assumes a crystalline structure.
