Use the shell model to explain why a lithium atom Li, is larger than a beryllium atom, Be.


I don't think it is larger. It has a lower atomic number 3 vs 4. It is therefore lighter

    Why do beryllium and fluorine combine in a 1 : 2 Ratio? Be is in group 2 (or IIA). F is in group VIIA (or 17 depending upon what system you are using). Therefore, flourine needs one electron to fill its outside shell. Be has two
