No, sodium is an alkali metal.

The halogens are fluorine, chlorine, bromine, iodine, and astatine.

anything in the halogen family..... 'specially chlorine

The halogen family of elements make up group VIIA of the periodic table. They are the nonmetallic chemical elements fluorine, chlorine, bromine, iodine, and astatine. The name halogen means salt, and all of these elements, each having a valence of -1, will readily react with sodium to form the halides sodium fluoride, sodium chloride (common table salt), sodium bromide, sodium iodide, and sodium astatide.

It's apart of the halogen family, along with Chlorine (Cl), Bromine (Br), Iodine(I) and Astatine (At) hope this helped :)

If you think to sodium chloride (NaCl) this contain Na and Cl (halogen).

What is the electron configuration for the halogen family?

Sodium plus Halogen yields Sodium Halide

Table salt is NaCl: sodium is an alkali metal, chlorine is a halogen. Sodium fluoride: sodium is an alkali metal, fluorine is a halogen.

Fluorine is the most reactive in the Halogen family.

sodium is an alkali metal and chlorine is a halogen....

Group 17 is considered as halogen family. The elements in this family has 7 valence electrons.

Fluorine is the most electronegative element in the halogen family.

Yes, it is. Though rarely talked about Astatine is in the Halogen family.

The Halogen family is special because you do it in science(: (CHEMISTRY)halogen family is fluorine, (F); chlorine, (Cl); bromine, (Br); iodine, (I); and astatine, (At).

Sodium is a metal and Bromine is a halogen. This is a typical combination for a salt. Sodium Chloride, NaCl is similar; Chlorine is also in the halogen group of elements.

Sodium is an alkali metal solid, chlorine is a halogen gas.

Fluorine, chlorine, bromine, iodine, and astatine. All of the elements in the halogen family are nonmetals.

Sodium is a solid alkali metal; chlorine is a nonmeatal, a gaseous halogen.

All the elements in the halogen family (fluorine, chlorine, bromine, iodine and astatine) are non-metals.

The number of electron that halogen family can gain is one electron

Chlorine is the non metal halogen family atomic mass.... 35

Well the halogen family is very reactive and the noble gasses are not reactive at all.

Halogen family members, or elements in group 17, have 7 valence electrons.
