Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 64P

Step 1:

Here, we have to determine whether the metal in each ionic compound forms only one type of ion or more than one type of ion and then we have to name the compounds :

An ionic compound is a substance formed from the chemical binding of elements with opposite charges. The force of attraction between opposite charges keeps the molecule together.  Simply put, Ionic compounds are generally combinations of metals and nonmetals where cations are metal ions and anions are nonmetal ions.

Example : Common table salt or Sodium chloride(NaCl), Silver iodide(AgI) .

There are 2 types of ionic compounds :

1. Type I ionic compound.
2. Type II ionic compound.

1. Type I ionic compound - They are the ionic compounds in which the cations(i.e metal ions) has a fixed charge.

2. Type II ionic compound - They are the ionic compounds in which the cations(i.e metal ions) has a variable charge.
