Also to know is, what is the name of the formula NaCl?
Similarly, what is the electron configuration of NaCl? The electron configurations of sodium andchloride ions—the components of table salt(NaCl)—provide a useful insight to the octet rule.Sodium (Na) with an electron configuration of1s22s22p63s1 sheds itsoutermost 3s electron and, as a result, the Na+ion has an electron configuration of 1s22s2 2p6.
Subsequently, question is, what is the structure of NaCl?
NaCl has a cubic unit cell. It is best thought ofas a face-centered cubic array of anions with an interpenetratingfcc cation lattice (or vice-versa). The cell looks the same whetheryou start with anions or cations on the corners. Each ion is6-coordinate and has a local octahedral geometry.
What is the Lewis symbol for Na+?
The dots in the Lewis dot structuresymbolize an atom's elements. Since Na^+ is a positive ion (cation)with a charge of +1, it indicates that it has lost an electron.Since Na had one electron, to begin with, and it is now lost, Na^+will have no dots.
