Ions and Ionic Bonds

Review of ions and ionic bonds

ions that have a positive charge cations
ions that come from groups 5A, 6A, 7A anions
ions that come from groups 1A, 2A, 3A cations
the overall charge of an ionic compound neutral
says that elements want 8 electrons to have octet rule
you look for this in a covalent compound's name prefix and 2 anions
a noble gas configuration means what group? 8A
number of valence electrons elements from Group 7A have 7
the charge that ions from elements in Group 7A will have 1-
the charge of Group 2A elements 2+
the number of valence electrons elements in Group 2A have 2
ions that keep the same name as the element cations
the charge of Group 5A elements 3-
ions that change their name ending to "-ide" anions
chemical bond made by sharing electrons covalent
the number of valence electrons elements from Group 5A have 5
fastest method to finding the formula of an ionic compound criss cross
chemical bond made by transferring electrons from cation to anion ionic
the number of valence electrons equals this number group number
innermost ; lowest energy electrons core
outermost ; highest energy electrons valence
