Group 1A: The Alkali Metals: H, Li, Na, and K
Group 2A: The Alkali Earth Metals: Be, Mg, and Ca
Group 3A: The Boron Family: For the most part, only Al
These atoms all want to get rid of their 'remainder' electrons so they have a full outer shell; like the Noble Gases.
Group 1A only has to loose 1 electron to be in its 'happy' state. (+1 charge)
Group 2A has to loose 2 electrons (+2 charge)
Group 3A has 3 to loose. (+3 charge)
Since a regular atom is naturally neutral (equal number of electrons to protons), loosing electrons (which are negative) off set the atom's 'balance of charge' and make it positive. At this point, the atom is no longer an atom, but an ion.
Metal form positive ions.
Metals tend to form positive ions.
Metals form positive ions.
Metals for positive ions
All elements can and many often do form positive ions.
All the elements can form ions.
The elements that lose electrons and form positive ions are called metals. They will lose the electrons from their highest levels of energy to gain a more positive charge and form positive ions.
These elements form positive ions (anions).
Metals are elements that lose electrons easily forming positive ions
Transition elements tend to form colored ions/compounds.
No. Non metal elements are more prone to form negative ions.

When Group 2A elements form ions they lose the electrons in their outer shell. In doing so they form positive ions known as cations.
Ions are cations (positive) or anions (negative).
some elements like sodium have low electronegativity and elements like chlorine have high electronegativity. So when they react sodium lose electrons and form positive ions and chlorine gains electrons and form negative ions. This is the reason why some atoms make positive ions and some negative ions.
Metals forms positive ions, cations.
Yes, Lithium forms positive ions. Since Lithium is in the first group of the periodic table of elements, it will form Li+ ions (lithium ions), which a charge of 1+.
because they have one electron in their outermost shell which can be easily removed and this removing electron form positive ions.
We haven't seen your graph. However, it is easy to say what kinds of ions elements form. Metals form positive ions and nonmetals form negative ions.
The lower the the Atomic Number, the higher the Ionic Energy.
The non-metal group forms negative ions therefore the metals form positive ions.
On the periodic table, Groups 4 - 7 tend to form negative ions. These groups tend to gain electrons, thus forming negative ions.
