Determine the charge of each ion.
(a) oxygen ion with 10 electrons
(b) aluminum ion with 10 electrons
(c) titanium ion with 18 electrons
(d) iodine ion with 54 electrons
It is known that elements with more number of electrons than atomic number is a -vely charged ion and elements with less number of electrons than the atomic number is a +vely charged ion.
Hence in option
(a) oxygen ion with 10 electrons i.e
The atomic number of oxygen is 8 O. In this question it has given that O atom has 10 electrons that means two more electrons will be on oxygen atom . so it is -vely charged (anion) i.e O2-
(b) Aluminum ion with 10 electrons:-
The atomic number of Al is 13, but in the given question it has been given that Al ion has 10 electrons , that means it loses its 3 electrons and form Al3+ ion. Thus Al atom with 10 electrons is +vely charged.
