Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by Chris on Sunday, November 12, 2006 at 9:39pm.

Why would you expect lithium and sulfur to have different chemical and physical properties?

Li is in group IA(or 1 depending upon the system you are using) and has 1 electron in its outer shell. S is in group VIA (group 6) and has six electrons in its outer shell. A different number of electrons means different properties.
