Warm Up. Give the formula that will result from reacting the following ions: Na + , O 2- Al 3+, Cl - Mg 2+ , N 3- Al 3+ , S 2- Ca + , Br -. Na 2 O sodium oxide AlCl 3 aluminum chloride Mg 3 N 2 magnesium nitride
Give the formula that will result from reacting the
Ca+, Br -
Na2O sodium oxide
AlCl3 aluminum chloride
Mg3N2 magnesium nitride
Al2S3 aluminum sulfide
No such thing as Ca+, can only be 2+ cation
Ionic Bonds and Compounds
Ionic bonds are not about sharing electrons rather ….
The more electronegative element (anion to be) simply steals the electron(s) from the more electropositive element (cation to be).
