Why is the term sodium chloride molecule incorrect but the term carbon dioxide molecule is correct?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Tuesday, October 4, 2016 Chemistry, Week 6 Formation - reaction type: • oxidation reactions— Na —> Na+ (equivalent to Ne) - + is oxidation, therefore you subtract the amount • reduction reactions— N —> N3- (equivalent to Ne) - - is reduction, therefore you add the amount - “Oil Rig”: oxidation is loss of electrons, reduction is the gain of electrons - Trends • Metals tend to undergo oxidation* • Nonmetals tend to undergo reduction • Carbon family is classified as a nonmetal • Si and Ge are both (depends on what they are with to know oxid. and red.) Sn —> Sn4+ or Sn2+ • - [Kr] 4d10 - [Kr] 5s2 4d10 • Pb —> Pb4+ or Pb2+ - [Xe] 4f14 5d10 - [Xe]6s2 4f14 5d10 Unit 2 Terms to know - period - group - family 1
