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 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).
