Why the d-block elements are called transition elements?

Asked by Topperlearning User | 6th Jun, 2016, 01:36: PM

Expert Answer:

The d–block occupies the large middle section of the periodic table and is flanked by s– and  p– blocks elements. The name ‘transition’ given to the elements of d-block is  because of their position  between s– and p– block elements and thus showing transition in properties of s and p block elements.
