Ch # 4 Group V A and Group VI A Elements Short Question


The elements of group VA of the periodic table comprise nitrogen, phosphorus, arsenic, antimony and bismuth. Nitrogen and phosphorus of group VA show the typical properties of non-metals. For example, they are poor conductors of heat and electricity and give acidic oxides. Their compounds are predominantly covalent. The members of group VIA are oxygen, sulphur, selenium, tellurium and polonium. These elements are called chalogens, from the Greek for “copper giver”, because they are often found in copper ores………….
