Astatine is a heavy halogen; no similarities with strontium (alkaline earth metal).

The chemical properties of calcium are most similar to (in between) the chemical properties of magnesium and strontium.

They are in the same group, and so they have similar electronic configuration and thus similar chemical properties

Strontium and iodine are very different chemical elements.

They all have the same chemical properties.

strontium, calcium, magnesium and beryllium

Any other halides - fluorine, chlorine, iodine or astatine

beryllium, calcium, strontium, barium, and radium; they are in the same group

Members of the same group on the periodic table have similar physical and chemical properties. So the other elements in Group 2 would have similar chemical properties as calcium. They are beryllium, magnesium, strontium, barium, and radium.

Any element, in the same group as fluorine, will have similar chemical properties. Since fluorine is group 7 these would be (in order of similarity) chlorine, bromine, iodine and astatine.

Flourine belongs to a class of elements called Halogens, which are similar in their chemical and physical properties. The other elements of this group are Chlorine, Bromine, Iodine, Astatine and Ununseptium. Astatine, however, is not considered to be a true halogen since it is radioactive in nature and Ununseptium is a synthetic element.

Elements in a group have similar chemical properties.

Calcium shares properties with Magnesium and Strontium.

Phosphorous (P) has chemical properties similar to nitrogen.

Strontium is more similar to Calcium then Rubidium as they are both in the same group (vertical). Where as Rubidium is in the same period but don't share similar properties (horizontal).

Radium has chemical properties similar to properties of calcium and barium.

The remainder of the halogens in group 17 have similar properties as chlorine. Those elements are fluorine, bromine, iodine, and astatine.

Magnesium has similar properties as calcium.

Yes, they have similar chemical properties.

families of elements with similar chemical properties are called groups.

It turns out that sulfur has similar chemical properties to oxygen.
