Ionic Bond Review

states that 8 is the stable number of valence electrons octet rule
element that is the exception to the octet rule (stable with 2) Helium [He]
change in the number of electrons ion
number that tells the number of ALL electrons atomic number
number that tells the number of VALENCE electrons group number
fast method of finding formula of ionic compounds criss crossing
ion with a positive charge (loses electrons) cations
ions with a negative charge (gains electrons) anions
overall charge of ionic and covalent compounds neutral
cations are found in these groups 1A, 2A , 3A
anions are found in these groups 5A , 6A, 7A
group(s) not seen in ionic or covalent compounds 8A
naming rule for cations same name as element
naming rule for anions ends in "ide"
