Determine the ionic compound formed between aluminum and fluorine using the periodic table and the Lewis theory
The Lewis theory suggests that ionic compounds rely on the # of valence electrons of the two ions where electron/s are transferred from the electropositive atom to the electronegative atom
In this case, we have aluminum (Al) which is a metal and fluorine (F) which is the nonmetal
Use Lewis theory to determine the chemical formula for the compound formed between Al and F.
