How are polyatomic ions different from monatomic ions?
Polyatomic Ions have 2 or more types of atoms in them. Monatomic Ions have ONLY ONE type of atom in them. ...

What happens to neutral atoms if they become positive ions?
When neutral atoms (mostly metals) loose one or more electrons they become positively charged ions. ...
Is most atoms have more electrons than proton false or true?
False, all atoms have the same no of electrons and protons. Negative ions have more electrons. Positive ions have fewer electrons. ...

What is the difference between a monatomic ion and a polyatomic ion?
Monoatomic ions are ions that consist of one atom. While polyatomic ions are ions of 2 or more atoms. ...
Why do ions are more stable than their neutral atoms?
because they are negative
Asked in Science, Chemistry, Atoms and Atomic Structure
Ions that are made of more than one atoms are examples of a.neutral ions b.positive ions c. negative ions d. polyatomic atoms?
Think about the question and each of the answers, particularly d) Polyatomic atoms. Even if I had no knowledge of chemistry, (d) would be the obvious answer. The question wants ions with MORE THAN ONE ATOM. Poly=Many/multiple, so 'polyatomic' quite literally means 'more than one atom'. ...
How do atoms differ from ions?
Atoms differ from ions in that atoms do not have net charge. Ions have net charges. There are two types of ions, anion and cation. Anion is positively charged while cation is negatively charged. ...
