Answer: Lead is the element in Group 14 that shows Inert Pair Effect.
Lead is a heavier and denser metal with the atomic number 82 and symbol Pb. It is malleable and soft and has a relatively low melting point. When it is cut, it appears in silver colour with a hint of blue. When it is exposed to air it tarnishes into a dull gray color. It tends to bond with itself and can form chains and polyhedral structures.
Which element in Group 14 shows Inert Pair Effect?
In group 14, Lead shows the inert pair effect. The nature of the two electrons in the outermost atomic s-orbital to remain unshared in compounds of post-transition metals is called the inert pair effect.
