Based on the Group Valency of Element Write the Molecular Formula of the Following Compound Giving Justification: Compound Formed When an Element a of Group 2 Combines with an Element B of Group - Science


One Line Answer

Based on the group valency of element write the molecular formula of the following compound giving justification:

Compound formed when an element A of group 2 combines with an element B of group seventeen.


The general formula for those kinds of compounds would be AB2
Example- MgCl2, CaCl2. This is because the valency of group 2 elements is 2 and that of group 17th elements if 1 so to satisfy the combining capacity of group 2 elements two of group 17 elements are required in the molecular formula. 

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
