Asked by Vishal kumar | 1 year ago |  246

##### Solution :-

(i) They were not applicable for very low mass or very high mass elements.

(ii) All the elements couldn’t fit into Dobereiner’s triads.

(iii) As the methods to calculate atomic mass improved, Dobereiner’s triads validity began to decrease. For example, in the triad of F, Cl and Br, the arithmetic mean of atomic masses of F and Br are not equal to the atomic mass of CI
