In general for the reaction of IA metals and VIIA nonmetals, the reaction equation is: 2 M (s) + X 2 ® 2 M + X - (s) where M is the metals Li to Cs and X is the nonmetals F to I. Electronically this is occurring. Next we examine the reaction of IIA metals with VIIA nonmetals. This reaction forms mostly ionic compounds. Notable exceptions are BeCl 2 , BeBr 2 , and BeI

Unformatted text preview: 2 which are covalent compounds. • One example is the reaction of Be and F 2 . The remainder of the IIA metals and VIIA nonmetals react similarly. • Symbolically this can be represented as: • M (s) + X 2 ® M 2+ X 2-• M can be any of the metals Be to Ba. • X can be any of the nonmetals F to Cl. • Be (s) + F 2(g) → BeF 2(g)...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
