describe the formation of a sr ion as its bons with chlorine to form SrCl2 and properties the compound will posess

  • chemistry -

    The Sr atom loses two electrons to chlorine to give it a +2 charge and that attracted to the negative Cl^- makes a relatively strong ionic bond. SrCl2 should have a high melting point, the solid crystal at room temperature should cleave neatly along crystal planes, etc, etc,.
