Draw the Lewis structure for the ionic compound that forms from Mg and each atom.
Step 1 of 3
Lewis structure of Mg and fluorine
Magnesium has 2 valence electrons and fluorine has one unpaired electron each it takes from magnesium forming magnesium fluoride .two fluorine atoms has two electron deficient and it takes two electron from magnesium atom and forming magnesium fluoride.
