Ionic Compounds Writing Formulas

2
**Ionic Compounds Metal + Nonmetal Can have a polyatomic ion**

Cation is first Anion is second TOTAL charge has to be zero!

3
**Transition Metals Can form different ions**

Ion charge is indicated with romal numerals after the element’s name Example: copper(I) has a +1 charge

4
**Steps for Writing Formulas**

Several examples will follow this slide! Write out the two parts that will be in the compound. Look up the charge and write it as a superscript for each part. Cross the numbers (no signs). Reduce the formula to the lowest numbers.
