This chapter "s-Block Elements" is about s-block elements.These are metals in Group IA and IIA of the periodic table. Their s-orbitals are being filled in their outer most shells, therefore, they are called s-block elements. They are divided into two types.

  • Alkali Metals
  • Alkaline Earth Metals
The elements of group IA except hydrogen are called "Alkali metals" and the elements of group IIA are called "Alkaline earth metals.
Major concepts of F.Sc. 2nd year Chemistry chapter 2 are:
