What is the nitrogen family used for?


Where is the nitrogen family located?

How do these elements react?

Group 15 of the Periodic Table

Nitrogen (N)-gasPhosphorus (P)-solidArsenic (As)-solidAntimony (Sb)-solidBismuth (Bi)-solidUnunpentium (Uup)-synthetic

Reaction with...air-nitrogen: nonephosphorus: glows in the dark arsenic: stableantimony: trioxide antimony oxidebismuth: trioxide bismuth oxidewater-nitrogen: dissolvesphosphorus: nonearsenic: noneantimony: trioxide antimony oxidebismuth: trioxide bismuth oxide

Nitrogen-ammonia which is used for fertilizer production and used to produce nitric acid Phosphorus-phosphoric acid which is used in soft drinks, fertilizer compounding, and fireworksArsenic-used to be used as a poison but now used to help preserve wood and as rat poisoningAntimony-used to produce metals and in semiconductors and power generatorsBismuth-used to make low-melting alloys which are used in automatic fire alarm and sprinkler systemsUnunpentium-very little is known about it so it is only used for research

How do these elements react?

Characteristics-have 5 valence electrons-they are all solid at room temperature except for nitrogen-consists of 2 nonmetals, 2 metalloids, and 1 metal-most are toxic in their pure state-densities increase towards the heavier elements in the family
