Problem: Use Lewis theory to determine the chemical formula for the compound formed between Al and F.a. AlFb. AlF3c. Al3F2d. Al2F3e. AlF2

FREE Expert Solution

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
