Q58) If NA is Avogadro's number then number of valence electron is 4.2g of nitride ions(N3-)is .. [ CBSE PMT 1994]

SOLUTION

Atomic weight of nitrogen is 14 = 1 mole

4.2g = 4.2/14 mole

Now number of valance electron in N^{-3} =5+3 =8

Therefore number of electrons in (4.2/14) moles of nitrogen ion =

(4.2/14) 8 = 2.4 moles or 4.2 N

Answer: (a)
