n the basis of their electron configurations, predict the fomula of the simple binary ionic compound likely to form when the following pairs of elements react with each other.

sodium, Na, and selenium, Se

rubidium, Rb, and fluorine, F

potassium, K, and tellurium, Te

barium. Ba, and selenium, Se

potassium, K, and astatine, At

francium, Fr, and chlorine, Cl

Interpretation Introduction

(a)

Interpretation:

The simple binary ionic compound formed when the pair of element reacts with each other is to be stated.

Concept Introduction:

The distribution of the electrons that exists in the atomic orbital of an atom is collectively known as electron configuration. The description of every electron that is moving freely in an orbital is given by the electron configuration of that atom.

Atoms lose or gain electrons to become stable by attaining nearest noble gas configuration. While doing so, they are converted to their respective ions. The positive ion and the negative ion combine to form their corresponding salt.

Explanation

The electron configuration of sodium with Z=11 is 1s22s22p63s1.

The electron configuration of Se with Z=34 is 1s22s22p63s23p63d104s24p4.

Sodium loses 1 electron to form Na+ and attains noble gas configuration of neon
