We're being asked to write a balanced equation for the formation of SrO(s) from the elements.
• Group 2A metal
• naturally occurs as Strontium solid → Sr(s)
• Group 6A
The ionic substance strontium oxide, SrO, forms from the direct reaction of strontium metal with molecular oxygen. The arrangement of the ions in solid SrO is analogous to that in solid NaCl and is shown here.
