no. na is an atom. cl is an atom. together they form nacl, a diatomic molecule :) and a grammar lesson for free, its an atom, not a atom.
Potassium(K) and Chlorine(Cl) combine to form Potassium Chloride (KCl). An ionic bond is formed between the potassium atom and the chlorine atom.
A bond between chlorine and bromine, Cl-Br, would be polar covalent.
A calcium atom will readily form Ca2+ ions while a chlorine atom will readily form Cl- atoms. Thus, ionic bonding is the only bonding that can occur between a calcium and a chlorine atom. The equation for the reaction is as follows: Ca + Cl2 --> CaCl2
There are 18 protons and 17 electrons in Cl atom.
The Na atom and the Cl atom of the molecule NaCl form what is known as an ionic bond. Basically the Sodium atom (Na) has a positive charge, while the chlorine atom (Cl) has a negative charge. Just like with magnets, the positive and the negative charge attract to each other.
Li atom donates one electron to a Cl atom when Li+Cl- is to be formed as ionic compound (salt):Li --> e- + Li+Cl + e- --> Cl--------------- +Li + Cl --> LiCl (or Li+Cl-)
Every type of atom can form compounds.
Cl and F form ionic bond when they combine with metals and form covalent bond when combined with non-metals.
In cl-cl bond 1 electron is sahred by each of Cl atom.
An atom can form a covalent bond and an ionic bond.
yes, chlorine is an atom
The Cl atom gains an electron from another atom, and electrons carry a 1- charge. The Cl atom does this because it has 7 outer shell electrons, which isn't very stable, while an outer shell of 8 electrons is stable.
K and Cl are not bonds, they are elements. they do form bonds though. this one would be covalent.
Elements are made from one type of atom.
Cl H | | N - N | | Cl H Fill in 3 unshared electron pairs around each Cl atom, and one unshared electron pair on each N atom. This molecule has one isomer, shown with the same formation swapping the places of one H atom with one Cl atom. Cl Cl | | N - N | | H H
Cl- Chloride ion 1s22s22p63s23p6 Cl Chlorine atom 1s22s22p63s23p5
Then this atom will become an anion (negatively charged) Example: Cl + e- --> Cl-
Cl2: Chlorine atom is Cl and you want two. Two atoms are single, covalently bonded to each other by one shared pair of electrons (one from each atom): (drawn as hyphen - or two dots .. between the 2 atoms)Cl-Cl or Cl..Cl
Potassium donates its electron in the outermost shell to the chlorine atom in order to form the ionic bond.
The second atom in NaCl(salt), is a chlorine atom, salts actual name is sodium chloride. Na is sodium and Cl is chlorine.
The size of the ion is larger than the size of the neutral atom.
The difference between the electronegativities of lithium and chlorine is big and an ionic bond is formed by electrostatic attraction.
Table salt is sodium chloride, NaCl. So 1 atom sodium and 1 atom chlorine elements are changed into ions: Na+ and Cl- to form the salt (ionic compound) Na+Cl-
The atom with one valence electron will lose its electron, giving it up to the atom with seven. An example is Sodium Chloride, NaCl. The reaction is Na+Cl -> Na+ + Cl- -> [Na+] [Cl-]
