Class 11 Chemistry Chapter 11 The p-Block Elements Carbon family include elements Carbon(C), Silicon (Si), Germanium (Ge), Tin (Sn), Lead(Pd). The general electronic configuration of this family is ns2 np2 that means these elements have valency 4. In nature Carbon is seventeenth most abundant element by mass in earth’s crust. However, carbon is found in […]

What is Air Pollution?

Class 11 Chemistry Chapter 14 Enviromental Chemistry Air pollution is the addition of unwanted component in air that causes harm to living organisms. Air pollution is nothing but atmospheric pollution. Atmospheric pollution is generally studied as tropospheric pollution and stratospheric pollution. Tropospheric pollution occurs due to undesirable solid or gaseous particle in the air. It […]

Mechanism of Redox Reaction

Class 11 Chemistry Chapter 8 Redox Reactions Occurance of reduction and oxidation process simultaneously with the chemical reaction is called redox reaction. Various phenomena like rusting of iron, browning of fruits, process of respiration, photosynthesis are result of redox reaction . However, redox reactions are mainly used in pharmaceuticals, industrial, metallurgical and in agricultural areas. […]
