Problem 87P

Predict how many electrons each element will most likely gain or lose.

(a) Ga

(b) Li

(c) Br

(d) S

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 87P

(a) Ga-Belongs to group 13 and hence has 3 electrons in the valence shell.Ga has a tendency to lose these 3 electrons

(b) Li-Belongs to group 1 and hence has 1 electron in the valence shell. Li has a tendency to lose this outermost electron

(c) Br-Belongs to group 17 and hence has 7 electrons in the valence shell.Br has a tendency to gain 1 electron to complete its octet

(d) S-Belongs to group 16 and hence has 6 electrons in the valence shell.S has a tendency to gain 2 electrons to complete its octet
