The electrical conductance of a molecule mainly depends on its covalent or ionic nature. CaH2 is an ionic hydride, which conducts electricity in the molten state. Titanium hydride, TiH2 is metallic in nature and conducts electricity at room temperature. Covalent compounds do not conduct, whereas Ionic compounds conduct. BeH2 is a covalent hydride. Hence, it does not conduct.
Hence, the increasing order of electrical conductance is as follows:
BeH2 < CaH2 < TiH2Answered by Pragya Singh | 1 year ago
What do you understand by the terms :
(i) Hydrogen economy
(iv) Water-gas shift reaction
(v) Fuel cell?
How does H2 O2 behave as a bleaching agent?
Do you expect different products in solution when aluminium (III) chloride and potassium chloride treated separately with
(i) alkaline water
(ii) acidified water, and
(iii) normal water. Write equations wherever necessary.
What do you expect the nature of hydrides is, if formed by elements of atomic numbers 15, 19, 23 and 44 with dihydrogen? Compare their behaviour with water.
How can saline hydrides remove traces of water from organic compounds?
