Question

Use Lewis symbols to show electron transfer between the following atoms to form cations and anions:

Ca and O

Solution 1

Ca and O:

The electronic configurations of Ca and O are as follows:

Ca: 2, 8, 8, 2

O: 2, 6

Oxygen requires two electrons more to complete its octet, whereas calcium has two electrons more than the nearest noble gas i.e., Argon. Hence, the electron transfer takes place as:

Solution 2

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
