    1) Sodium chloride is not written as NACl, it is written as NaCl . Even, any compound can not be written in the way you just want ... (unless its true :) ) like : water is written as \(H_2 O\) sodium hydroxide is written as \(NaOH\) Na is itself an element representation (symbol) so O and H is . (I hope you have learnt about them so far) 2) NaCl is an ionic compound because : \(Na^{+} \space and \space Cl^{-}\) are ions and hence they have ionic bond. 3) Na+ is a positive ion so it will be cation. Cl- is a negative ion so it will be anion. Hope this helps, thanks!
