So, elements that are in the same group have similar chemical properties and metals in the same group will react with the same nonmetals. As well as this, elements in the same group generally lose or gain the same numbers of electrons, and so form the same charge as an ion, such as 2+ or 3-. This much I know. How do these concepts fit together though? Or don’t they? Is there a relation?
