Beryllium should be expected to have a charge of 2+ as is
expected of all the elements in Group 2 of the periodic table. But
its behavior is somewhat different than other Group 2 elements
because it has so few electrons. This element tends to form
All nuclei have a positive charge.
So beryllium-9 has a positive charge.
