    atoms this column 'loose a single electron', to form positive ions (+1)

    These things will be come second nature after a few weeks, Li +1 and Ca +2 and N -1 for example,, i could be wrong though, maybe 8 yrs since chem

    There ions are formed to reach to the nearest stable electronic configuration i.e. noble gas configuration.......So, in case of them, Li needs to reach He config. i.e. 1 less e-, so, ion will be Li1+

    He has 2e- but Li has 3, so, 3-2=+1

    group 1 is -1 generally, and group 2 is +2,, transitions have many different ones, and the others,halogens -1, then moving left -1 more each.. to begin
