Formation of Ionic Compounds Draw the electronic configurations for Li, O, and their appropriate ions. You do it! 2s 2p 2s 2p Li [He] ® Li +1 [He] O [He] ¯ ¯ ® O -2 [He] ¯ ¯ ¯ ¯ Draw the Lewis dot formula representation of this reaction. You do it! Formation of Ionic Compounds 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.

Unformatted text preview: Formation of Ionic Compounds The reaction of IIA metals and VA nonmetals also follows the trends that we have established in this chapter. The reaction of calcium with nitrogen is a good example. The reaction equation is: You do it! Formation of Ionic Compounds Draw the electronic representation of Ca, N, and their ions. You do it! 4s 4p 4s 4p Ca [Ar] Ca + [Ar] 2s 2p 2s 2p N [He] N 3-[He]...
