# With Reference to the Formation of Compounds from Atoms by Electron Transfer – Electron Valency, State the Basic Steps in the Conversion of Sodium and Chlorine Atoms to Sodium and Chloride - Chemistry

Diagram

With reference to the formation of compounds from atoms by electron transfer – electron valency, state the basic steps in the conversion of sodium and chlorine atoms to sodium and chloride ions leading to the formation of the compound – sodium chloride.
[electronic configuration of: Na = 2, 8, 1 & Cl = 2, 8, 7]

#### Solution

Electronic configuration

Na                        Cl
11 = 2, 8, 1           17 = 2, 8, 7

$\ce{Na+ + Cl-}$
⇒ NaCl compound
