Draw a bohr diagram of the protons and electrons in each of the following:
The ionic compounds lithium fluoride, LIF, and beryllium chloride, Becl2.
Do I draw these 2 compounds separately, and I'm unsure of how.
Yes, you draw individual IONS of Li^+ and F^-, for example, Here is a site that shows the orbits. For Li you would place two electrons in the first shell and the ion would have a 1+ charge; F would have 2e in the first shell and 8 in the second with a 1- charge. The question also wants you to show in the nucleus the number of protons.
