    @JoannaBlackwelder Nope but it would be great if I could get the answer from someone :)

    @JoannaBlackwelder I'm absolutely horrible at chemistry I just need to pass this course

    Do you know the charge of a single Potassium ion?

    Nope. I seriously have no clue what I'm doing. I'm passing the course and I'm almost done which is all I'm worried about. So would it be a, b, c, or d?

    Just a heads up we are not allowed to give direct answers on openstudy.

    Well a ton of people have done it lol and I'm okay with being lazy because I'm no good at Chemistry and I really don't like it which is the reason I'm doing an online course on it in summer

    Still not giving you the answer... what are you gaining from me doing a very easy chemistry question for you? Nothing. If you are taking a course why not try to gain the most knowledge and understanding of the material?

    I'm glad that you find this incredibly easy, however, I have never found it to be that. This is an independent study course that I am attempting to succeed at so that I can move onto my new school. I spend hours a day trying to understand this and it is a struggle. There is no laziness involved. @sweetburger

    Ill try to start you off. Take a look at what group in the periodic table Potassium is in. Notice how many valence electrons each of these atoms have. If Potassium loses its valence electrons then what will be the charge of the ion afterwards.

    Also the charges on some of these ions are not conceptual understanding its just blatant memorization which would require effort/ a commitment to memory to understand, but this question doesn't require that as if you know the charge on the K then you know the charge on the SO4.
