metallic element sodium → Na(s)
nonmetallic element bromine → Br2(l)
reaction (combination reaction):
Na → Group 1A → +1 charge → Na+
Br→ Group 7A → -1 charge → Br-
When the metallic element sodium combines with the nonmetallic element bromine, Br2(l), what is the chemical formula of the product?
Is the product a solid, liquid, or gas at room temperature?
