Textbook Problem

You land on a distant planet in another universe and find that the n = 1 level can hold a maximum of 4 electrons, the n = 2 level can hold a maximum of 5 electrons, and the n = 3 level can hold a maximum of 3 electrons. Like our universe, protons have a charge of +1, electrons have a charge of −1, and opposite charges attract. Also, a filled shell results in greater stability of an atom, so the atom tends to gain or lose electrons to give a filled shell. Predict the formula of a compound that results from the reaction of a neutral metal atom X, which has 7 electrons, and a neutral nonmetal atom Y, which has 3 electrons.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The formula of the given neutral metal and neutral non-metal has to be predicted.

Explanation

The given neutral metal is lose three electrons then its form cation, on other hand the neutral nonmetal gain three electrons then it will forms anion.  The anion and cation formed ionic compounded.  X metal lose three electron from its level then it form X3+ <
