AP Chem - Ions

If you are incredibly confused, perhaps you could visit http://chemistry.about.com/od/nomenclature/a/nomenclature-ionic-compounds.htm Note: the subscript is normal (shown as a normal letter), so make a space between the charge and the subscript, unless it's only +1 (+) or 1- (-) For instance: peroxide is O2 2-, not O22-, to avoid confusion. However, ammonium is NH4+ because it's a +1 charge.
