Flashcards in Chemistry: Ions and Ionization Deck (15):
Why do atoms form ions?
To become more stable, by creating a full outer shell.
What do atoms do to become more stable?
What is the outer shell of an atom known as?
What is a valence shell?
The outer shell of an electron.
By creating a full outer shell, they obtain an electron arrangement like those of the ____________.
Do metals tend to gain or lose electrons?
Do metals tend to form electrons with a negative or positive charge?
Positive (they lose electrons so they have more protons)
Do non-metals tend to gain or lose electrons?
Do non-metals tend to from ions with a negative or positive charge?
Negative (they gain electrons so they have less protons)
