# What would be the compound formula of Strontium Bromide?

Aug 8, 2018

Well, strontium is an $\text{alkaline earth...}$ from $\text{Group 2}$ of the Periodic Table..

#### Explanation:

It has two valence electrons and commonly forms $S {r}^{2 +}$ ion. Bromine is a non-metal with seven valence electrons, and commonly forms the $B {r}^{-}$ ion.

When strontium and bromine make music together, we conceive of a redox process...

$S r \left(s\right) + B {r}_{2} \left(l\right) \rightarrow S r B {r}_{2} \left(s\right)$
