The remainder of the IA metals and VIA nonmetals behave similarly. Symbolically this can be represented as: 2 M (s) + X M 2 1+ X - M can be any of the metals Li to Cs. X can be any of the nonmetals O to Te. The reaction of IIA metals and VA nonmetals also follows the trends that we have established in this chapter.

Unformatted text preview: The reaction of calcium with nitrogen is a good example. Other IIA and VA elements behave similarly. Symbolically, this reaction can be represented as: 3 M (s) + 2 X (g) M 3 2+ X 2 3- M can be the IIA elements Be to Ba. X can be the VA elements N to As....
