Solution: Write the formulas for the analogous species of the elements of period 3.

Solution: Write the formulas for the analogous species of the elements of period 3.

Problem

Write the formulas for the analogous species of the elements of period 3.

Solution

We are asked to write formulas for the analogous species of the elements of period 3.

Recall: A structural analog, also known as a chemical analog or simply an analog, is a compound having a structure similar compound to that of another compound, but differing from it in respect to a certain component.

Elements in period 3 include Sodium (Na), Magnesium (Mg), Aluminum (Al), Silicon (Si), Phosphorus (P), Sulfur (S), Chlorine (Cl), Argon (Ar).
