Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2It 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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2You 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so it would be Cucl?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so this may be a stupid question but what Cl3 stand for?

Astrophysics

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Mhm 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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2dw:1435957604642:dw you want to balance it out when you make a compound so they both have equal charged

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so you have iron(iii)chloride now

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but would it that mean that it would be 2+ because the 3+ and the 1? maybe i am over thinking it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2You want to have a neutral charge, or let me simplify it more, you want the "elements" to have equal charges in the compound

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Np, all makes sense right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2So let me ask you one question, how would you make a compound of lets say magnesium nitride

Astrophysics

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Look at the periodic table for charges

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it would be 2+ right

Astrophysics

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Well, you have dw:1435957943479:dw you can ignore that 2 for now it just means it's a diatomic element, but balance this compound

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2(ignore 2 for nitrogen)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so like MG,N3?i know that its like if you have two that are the same its just the letters

Astrophysics
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2No, 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ooo 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

Astrophysics

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Well, it's not exactly flipping the numbers, if I gave you tin oxide, you would have dw:1435958432367:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Notice you have to simplify this one

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2You need to learn this before you can balance a chemical equation
