Asked by vasturushi | 29th Sep, 2017, 12:29: PM
PCl3 hydrolyses in the presence of moisture and gives fumes of HCl.
The reaction is as follows:
PCl3 + 3 H2O → H3PO3 +3HCl

- Among noble gases and group 16 elements which one has higher ionisation enthalpy and why?
- Give reasons for the following: (i) Fluorine atom is more electronegative than iodine atom but HF has lower acidic strength than HI.(ii) The electron affinity of fluorine is less than that of chlorine but the oxidizing power of fluorine is greater than that of chlorine.
