Problem 75E

Group Trends in Metals and Nonmetals (Sections)

(a) As described in Section, the alkali metals react with hydrogen to form hydrides and react with halogens to form halides. Compare the roles of hydrogen and halogens in these reactions. How are the forms of hydrogen and halogens in the products alike?

(b) Write balanced equations for the reaction of fluorine with calcium and for the reaction of hydrogen with calcium. What are the similarities among the products of these reactions?
