2. The primary “alence is ionisable and satisfied by negative ions.

3. The secondary valence is non ionisable. It is equal to the coordination number of the central metal ion or atom. It is fixed for a metal. Secondary valences are satisfied by negative ions or neural molecules (ligands).

4. The primary valence is non directional. The secondary valence is directional. Ions or molecules attached to satisfy secondary valences have characteristic spatial arrangements. Secondary valence decides geometry of the complex compound,

2nd PUC Chemistry Model Question Paper 4 with Answers 18

b) Among alcohols and phenols which one is more acidic ? and why ? (2)
In phenol charge because of resonance this facilitates the heterolytic eleavage of – OH bond resulting in the* formation of phenoxide ion the benzene ring with draws the negative charge from oxygen atom hence phenutide ion formed is resonance stabilizes dne to this phenols are acidic in nature.

But in alchohols neither does oxygen of- OH group acquire positive change nor is the alkoxide ion is resonance stabilized in addition to this oxygen in alchols is attached to elestron donating alkyl groups these electron donating groups decrease the stability of alkoxide ion hence alchok are not acidic
