Metals lose electrons under certain conditions to attain a noble-gas electron configuration. How many electrons must be lost by the element Ca?

Is it 2 e^-?

Which noble-gas electron configuration is attained in this process?
argon
radon
krypton
xenon
helium
neon

  • Chemistry -

    Yes it is Ca.
    Look at Ca on the periodic chart and take two electrons away. Back up two and identify the noble gas.

  • NEED HELP -

    Is it Argon?

  • Chemistry -

    yes.
