Give an example of ionic compound formation.

Answer:

Ionic compounds can be defined as the crystalline solids formed by neatly packed ions of opposite charge. Ionic compounds are usually formed when metals react with non-metals.

  • Ionic compounds are ion compounds.
  • These ions are atoms that gain or lose electrons, resulting in a net positive or negative charge.
  • Metals tend to lose electrons, so they have a net positive charge and become cations.
  • Non-metals tend to gain electrons, creating a net negative charge of anions.
  • Ionic bond is formed between a metal and non-metal.

Ionic compound examples

Example of an ionic compounds are Sodium Chloride(NaCl). NH4Cl.
