It will be a metal, as gases have negative charges. Na has 1+ Cu has 2+/1+ K has 1+ Fe how ever has 3+/2+ Mg has 2+ So your answer is?
You can also look at your compound and tell right away which one it is, as Cl has a charge of 1-, and you have to balance compounds as well.
so it would be Cucl?
Read what I've said and look at what your question is asking.
i am so confused. i suck at this
|dw:1435957321256:dw| the writing in pink represents the charge
Fe has a 3+ ion and a 2+ ion
so this may be a stupid question but what Cl3 stand for?
Mhm ok, so it seems you've not learned how to "balance" the compounds, notice how in the periodic table I've put a 1- charge on the right side, and Cl falls into it right?
yes i see that
|dw:1435957604642:dw| you want to balance it out when you make a compound so they both have equal charged
so you have iron(iii)chloride now
but would it that mean that it would be 2+ because the 3+ and the -1? maybe i am over thinking it
|dw:1435957694954:dw| if that helps
You are, you don't subtract/ add
okay i get it. thank you so much for your help ;0 )
You want to have a neutral charge, or let me simplify it more, you want the "elements" to have equal charges in the compound
Np, all makes sense right?
yes thank you
So let me ask you one question, how would you make a compound of lets say magnesium nitride
Look at the periodic table for charges
it would be 2+ right
Well, you have |dw:1435957943479:dw| you can ignore that 2 for now it just means it's a diatomic element, but balance this compound
(ignore 2 for nitrogen)
so like MG,N-3?i know that its like if you have two that are the same its just the letters
No, notice how magnesium has a 2+ charge, and nitrogen has a 3- charge, we are looking for magnesium nitride, which would then be \[\huge Mg_3N_2\] easy as that
ooo right you just flip the numbers i forgot about that. i am doing a speed class in collage and its going a little to fast lol
Well, it's not exactly flipping the numbers, if I gave you tin oxide, you would have |dw:1435958432367:dw|
Notice you have to simplify this one
oooo god this is getting crazy lmao
Well this is all high school chem
You need to learn this before you can balance a chemical equation
