Science lesson 5 question 4 answer second

1.Electronic configuration of magnesium is (2, 8,2) and that of chlorine is (8, 8,7)

2.The outermost cell of magnesium and chlorine atoms is not a complete octet

3.Magnesium atomic losses two electronic to formed Mg2+ ions which has a complete octet.

4.Each chlorine atomic gains and electron to formed Cl- it's which has a complete octet.

5.Ionic bonds are formed between the oppositely charged Mg2+ and Cl- it's and thus the ionic compound MgCl2 having very high stability is formed.
