Identifying Ionic and Molecular Compounds

Which of these compounds would you expect to be ionic: N2O, Na2O, CaCI2, SF4?

Give a reason why each of the following statements is a safe prediction: (a) Every compound of Rb with a nonmetal is ionic in character, (b) Every compound of nitrogen with a halogen element is a molecular compound, (c) The compound MgKr2 does not exist, (d) Na and K are very similar in the compounds they form with nonmetals, (e) If contained in an ionic compound, calcium (Ca) will be in the form of the doubly charged ion, Ca2 + .

Rubidium is a metal belonging to alkali metal group with one electron in its outer mostshell. It is easier for Rb to lose one electron rather gaining seven electrons to attain noble-gasconfiguration, forming Rb cation. Thus, when it combines with a non-metal it gives one electronrather than accepting electrons from it, forming only ionic compounds. So every compound ofRb with non-metal is ionic in character.
