Writing Formulas for Ionic Compounds

Postby Samantha Rundle 3K » Sun Nov 15, 2015 4:14 pm

For the homework there are examples where we have to include "ion" when naming a compound that has a charge, but when converting the name to the formula, none of them had "ion" in their names. If we did have to write out the compound for an ion, would it tell us the charge needed or would it just be obvious from the given name and charges of ligands?

The charge of a complex ion can be determined from the name.
