Metals tend to form cations (positive ions).
Generally metals tend to form ions.
Metals tend to form positive ions.
Neon group elements does not tend to form ions at all.They are in stable state and do not form ions.
Metals tend to lose electrons, so they form positive ions called cations.
Metals always tend to have positive ions while non-metals tend to have negative ions
Group one, not including element 1 (helium) tend to form ions.
The metals and non metals which tend to form positive ions are cations. It is because of their electronic configuration.
On the periodic table, Groups 4 - 7 tend to form negative ions. These groups tend to gain electrons, thus forming negative ions.
The groups to the far left and far right with the exception of the Noble gases all tend to form ions. In addition, the transition metals also tend to form ions.
Nonmetals tend to form negative ions.
Group that tend to form -1 ions include group VIIA
They don't form any ion.
Transition elements tend to form colored ions/compounds.
Metals tend to form positive ions also known as cations.
Lose electrons and form positive ions.
The two ions tend to recombine to form liquid water
Metals tend to lose electrons to form positive ions because, for metals to gain a full outer shell, they need to lose electrons.
Shed electrons to form positive ions.
Transition metals tend to have colorful ions and compounds.
