We are asked to determine the Lewis symbol for the ions in the ionic compound SrBr2


First, let’s determine the valence electrons of the elements in SrBr2

Recall: The group number of representative elements corresponds to their valence electrons



 Strontium, Sr is from group 2A

  • 2 valence electron when neutral
  • Will have a +2charge (removes 2 electrons)
  • Total valence electron for Sr2+  = 2 - 2 = 0
