An ion with a negetive charge. Formed by gaining electrons.
an ion with a positive charge. formed by losing electrons
the force that holds atoms together
Chemical symbol that shows the ratio and amount of elements in a compond
a chemical bond that results from the sharing of electrons
element that can covalently bond with themselves to form a molicule
metal that can be drawn into a thin wire
electron dot diagram
a shorthand reersentation of the valence electrons in an atom
how to write the formula for an ionic compond
write the symbol fro your metal first, then your nonmetal second
an atom that has an electrical charge
a chemical bond between oppositely charged ions
ionic compounds will conduct electricity
when dissolved in a liquid
metals being hammered into a thin sheet
They normally lose electrons during chemical reactions. usually form posotive ions.
naming ionic compounds
the name of the metal comes first, followed by the name of the non-metal, changing the nonmetal's ending the "ide"
the normally gain electrons during chemical reactions. Usually form negative ions.
atom gain or lose electrons to get a full outermost energy level
tells the amount of atoms in a compond
outermost electrons which will determine bonding
