Ions & Covalent Bond

Review of ions and ionic bonds

cations have this charge positive
anions are in what groups 5A , 6A , 7A
cations are in what groups 1A , 2A , 3A
the overall charge of an ionic compound neutral
says that elements want 8 valence electrons octet rule
anions have this charge negative
element that is the exception due to number of valence electrons helium
ions that keep the same name as the element cations
ions that change their name ending to "-ide" anions
name of ions coming from Group 7A halide
fastest method to finding the formula of an ionic compound criss cross
chemical bond made by 1 cation and 1 anion ionic
the number of valence electrons in main group elements equals this number group number
innermost ; lowest energy electrons core
outermost ; highest energy electrons valence
ions come from a change in the number of this electrons
bond made between 2 anions covalent
bond made between 1 cation and 1 anion ionic
prefix for 5 penta
prefix for 9 nona
prefix for 6 hexa
prefix for 7 hepta
