Homework Help: Strontium and ammonia

  1. Mar 29, 2013 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I had a problem in inorganic chemistry that required I know what forms when strontium dissolves in ammonia. Looking at the answer, it says that

    Sr + NH3 ---> Sr[NH3]6

    I'm not sure how I would have been able to predict that this is what formed.

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
