Magnesium is a Group 2 metal. What are the other Group 2 metals?


If you are doing your chemistry homework, there must be a copy of the Periodic Table in front of you. There is one in front of me now, and I count 5 other members of the Group. Why should the other Group members have similar properties to magnesium?
