    Compare the elements B, Al, C, and Si:
    (a) Which has the most metallic character?
    (b) Which has the largest atomic radius?
    (c) Which has the greatest electron affinity?
    (d) Place the three elements B, Al, and C in order of increasing first ionization energy.

    Name the element corresponding to each characteristic below:
    (a) the element with the electron configuration 1s^2 2s^2 2p^6 3s^2 3p^3
    (b) the Group 2 element with the smallest atomic radius
    (c) the element with the largest ionization energy in Group 15
    (d) the element whose 2_ ion has the configuration [Kr]4d^5
    (e) the element with the greatest electron affinity in Group 17
    (f) the element whose electron configuration is [Ar]3d^10 4s^2

    Give the names of the orbitals derived by solution of the Schrodinger equation when the following values of quantum numbers have been used:
    (a) n = 4, l = 2, m_l = -2
    (b) n = 4, l = 2, m_l = 0
    (c) n = 3, l = 0, m_l = 0
    (d) n = 2, l = 1, m_l = -1
    (e) n = 5, l = 3, m_l = 2
