an element X is placed in group 14. State the formula and the nature of bonding in its chloride. Draw electron dot structure of its chloride. PLZZZ HELP
therefore the element belongs to 3rd period(no.of shell) and IV A ie 14th(NO.OF VALENCE ELECTRONS)
So the element is Si with valency 4.
valency of cl is 1
so the formulae is SiCL4
