It is not possible to provide an illustration using this editor of the Lewis structure of Calcium, it is possible to provide the electron configuration of the valence electrons as follows: 1s2 2s2 2p6 3s2 3p6 4s2.

I know, hard to show here so maybe someday I will start uploading pics. But consider that the lower energy shells of Ca are all full, ie.,... 1s2 2s2 2p6 3s2 3p6 and also has the next energy level shell occupied by two electrons ie. Is very reactive, quite like Magnesium. These are the two 'S' electrons in the 4th shell and I often use this,...

[Ar]4s2, IOW, it has everything the gas Argon has plus two 4S electrons, also,...

[Ar]: Is sort of Lewis acid/base like structure.

NOTE to Blurtit: Give us a better editor and/or make it easier to turn off Superscripts and Subscripts.

1s2 2s2 2p6 3s2 3p6 4s2
