Give the empirical formulas and names of the compounds formed from the following pairs of ions: (a) Rb1 and I2, (b) Cs1 and SO22 4 , (c) Sr21 and N32, (d) Al31 and S22
Step 1 of 3
Ionic Compounds -Noble Gases: the only happy atoms. Happiness = same number of (e-) as Noble Gases. Atoms will 1. Lose (e-) 2. Gain (e-) 3. Share (e-) 1. Lose (e-): Metal atoms like to lose (e-). Na has 11 (p+) meaning it has 11 (e-) = unhappy It becomes happy by becoming the closest noble gas to it ---> Ne (10 (e-)) It will lose 1 (e-) to become happy...
