    Ca belongs to Group 2 while Na belongs to Group 1 in the

    Periodic Table .

    It is easier for Na to lose one electron to form Na+

    than Ca to lose two electrons to form Ca2+ .

    In the E.C.S. , the position of Ca is higher than that of Na means

    Ca is a stronger reducing agent and has a higher ability to reduce

    others while oxidizing itself .

    Why ? Na should be the one who lose electron more readily .

    Ca is in Period 4 while Na is in Period 3 ,

    Ca has one more electron shell than Na ,

    the attraction from the nucleus on the outermost electrons of Ca

    is thus less than that of Na.

    That's why

    Ca E.C.S排得高過Na o既???????????????

    K, Na, Ca, Mg, Al..........

    Ca need to give out 2 electrons to form a Ca2+ ion, it is easy to lose the first electron, but more difficult (compare with the first electron) to lose the second electron from Ca+ (positive charge) ion.
