Compounds containing polyatomic ions can have both ionic and covalent bonds?

Yes. This is not only possible but universal, because a polyatomic ion is defined as a group of two or more covalently bonded elements with a net electric change. The ion as a

How do you write the formula for a compound containing a polyatomic ion?

Generally, polyatomic ions all have charges, or valency electrons which act as the charges as a whole. They are considered as a whole category of compounds in chemistry which

How are formulas written for ionic compounds with polyatomic ions?

Formulas for ionic compounds with polyatomic ions are written just like normal ionic compounds would be written like. For example, lets say your ionic compound is Ammonium nit

Why are compounds with polyatomic ions considered to be both ionic and covalent?

The chemical bonding within a polyatomic ion is covalent, but the polyatomic ions are bonded ionically to some other ions of the opposite electrical charge. Note that all the

How do polyatomic ions form ionic compounds?

Ionic bonds are formed due to the transfer of electrons from one atom (metal) to another atom (nonmetal) to give oppositely charged particles called ions to attain a noble gas
In Chemistry

How do write the formula for a compound containing a polyatomic ion?

Make sure you are familiar with the most common polyatomic ions. Look at the locations of the elements on the Periodic table. Atoms in the same column as each other tend to ex
