The sulfate ion is SO42-
The sulfite ion is SO32- and is more basic that sulfate.
Sulfate is a polyatomic ion with the formula SO42- Sulfite is a polyatomic ion with the formula SO32- Sulfide is a monatomic ion with the formula S2-
The sulfite ion is SO32- It is not to be confused with sulfate, SO42-
The Sulfate ion is SO4 2- The Sulfite ion is SO3 2-
The polyatomic ion is the sulfite ion SO32-, the compound is iron(II) sulfite. (The sulfate ion is SO42-
Sulfite is a ion, while Sulfur trioxide is a molecule
yesss Sulfate has 4 oxygen written as SO4 ^2- while sulfite has 1 less oxygen making Sulfite SO3^2-
I think you mean either:- FeSO4 Iron(II) sulfate or ferrous sulfate Fe2(SO4)3 Iron(III) sulfate or ferric sulfate FeSO3 iron(II) sulfite or ferrous sulfite Fe2(SO3)3 iron(III) sulfite or ferric sulfite (I believe this compound is theoretical - the sulfite ion reduces the Fe3+ to Fe2+ )
ate as in sulfate, which is SO4 as opposed to sulfite, which is SO3
Sulfate is a polyatomic ion with the chemical symbol SO4 and a valency of 2-. Sulfide is a monatomic ion with the formula S2-
The sulfate ion is SO42 -. The oxidation state of the sulfur is +6 (work it out!); therefore, the ion is more properly named the sulfate(VI) ion. The sulfite ion is SO32-. The oxidation state of the sulfur is +4.
Sulfur can form the sulfide ion (S2-) and the disulfide ion (S22-) on its own. When combined with oxygen it can form the sulfate ion (SO42-) and sulfite ion (SO32-).
SO4-2The sulfate ion is a polyatomic ion made up of one sulfur atom and four oxygen atoms, that exists only if it can gain 2 electrons (from some metal cation or cations). It has a charge of -2. Note that this is the sulfate ion and not the sulfiteion.
The ionic charge of a sulfite ion is 2+
The formula for sulfite ion is SO3-2.
Yes: A sulfite ion is polyatomic.
The ion sulfite has the chemical formula SO2-3. The hydrogen sulfite ion has the chemical formula HSO-3.
A sulfide ion is an ion of just the sulfur atom on its own, whereas a sulfate ion is an ion that is composed of sulfur and oxygen, typically SO42-.
Ammonium is NH4 + and Sulfate (I think you meant sulfate anyway) is SO42-. To make a neutral ion you need two ammoniums and one sulfate. It looks like this: 2NH4SO4 or (NH4)2SO4.
Sodium sulfate is ionically bonded between the sodium ion and the sulfate ion. However, the sulfate ion is covalently bonded between the sulfur and the oxygens.
a molecule is two or more atoms combined. a molecular ion has a valence charge. an example of a molecular ion is sulfate ion or ammonium ion. they both have a charge.
Arsenic ion = As3+Sulfite ion = SO3-2Arsenic sulfite = As2(SO3)3
The polyatomic ion sulfite = SO3-2
K2S is potassium sulfide K2SO3 is potassium sulfite K2SO4 is potassium sulfate. In an ionic compound, the endings -ite and -ate indicate a negative ion that contains oxygen, with -ate indication more oxygen than -ite. The ending -ide usually indicates an oxygen-free ion with the exception of oxide and its variants.
Aside from the difference between American and British spelling and the singular and plural, sulfate ions have the formula SO4-2 and sulphite ions have the formula SO3-2. Chemically, then, the difference is one oxygen atom per ion.
