ok this is probably not the place to ask but i really need help! ok here is the question: How does the A block and the B block differ in oxidation numbers?
#2
B block are the transition metals and have variable oxidation states.

I hate this method of naming the table because its confusing.

However, the IVA group has 2+ and 4+ possibilities...

What the hell are A block and B block?
Oh George... Oh George.

That Texas education must've fucked you up when you very small.

The stupiest naming system for the periodic table ever.

IA is alkali metals
IIA is Alkali Earth metals.
IB-VIIB is the transition series
IIIA group 3
IVA group 4
VA group 5
VIA group 6
VIIA Halogens
VIIIA Nobel gases

Stupid as hell!

It goes group 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 now...

i agree with u

So A block is essentially S + P block?

And B block is D + F?
