• # question_answer 84)   p-block elements form acidic, basic and amphoteric oxides. Explain each property by giving two examples also write the reactions of these oxides with water.

p-block elements form acidic, basic and amphoteric oxides. C, N, P, S, Cl, etc. (i.e., p-block elements) form acidic oxides. They combine with water to form oxyacids. $C{{O}_{2}}+{{H}_{2}}O\to \underset{\text{Carbonic}\,\text{acid}}{\mathop{{{H}_{2}}C{{O}_{3}}}}\,$ ${{N}_{2}}{{O}_{5}}+{{H}_{2}}O\to \underset{Nitric\,acid}{\mathop{2HN{{O}_{3}}}}\,$ ${{P}_{2}}{{O}_{5}}+3{{H}_{2}}O\to \underset{Orthophosphoric\,acid}{\mathop{2{{H}_{3}}P{{O}_{4}}}}\,$ $S{{O}_{3}}+{{H}_{2}}O\to \underset{Sulphuric\,acid}{\mathop{{{H}_{2}}S{{O}_{4}}}}\,$ $C{{l}_{2}}{{O}_{7}}+{{H}_{2}}O\to \underset{Perchloric\,acid}{\mathop{2HCl{{O}_{4}}}}\,$ Al, Sb, Pb, etc. (i.e., p-block elements) form amphoteric oxides.
