Flashcards in Chemistry: Ions and Ionization Deck (15):
1

Why do atoms form ions?

To become more stable, by creating a full outer shell.

2

What do atoms do to become more stable?

Form Ions

3

What is the outer shell of an atom known as?

Valence Shell

4

What is a valence shell?

The outer shell of an electron.

5

By creating a full outer shell, they obtain an electron arrangement like those of the ____________.

Noble Gases

6

Do metals tend to gain or lose electrons?

Lose

7

Do metals tend to form electrons with a negative or positive charge?

Positive (they lose electrons so they have more protons)

8

Do non-metals tend to gain or lose electrons?

Gain

9

Do non-metals tend to from ions with a negative or positive charge?

Negative (they gain electrons so they have less protons)
