How do you describe an ion?

An ion is defined as an atom or molecule that has gained or lost one or more of its valence electrons, giving it a net positive or negative electrical charge. In other words, there is an imbalance in the number of protons (positively charged particles) and electrons (negatively charged particles) in a chemical species.

What is a +2 ion?

Magnesium is in the second column and therefore has 2 electrons in its outermost shell. It would tend to lose two electrons and form a +2 ion. Potassium is in the first column and therefore has 1 electron in its outermost shell.

What is a 1+ ion?

Many of the elements on the periodic table will always form ions that have the same charge. The alkali metals (shown in yellow) always form +1 ions. The alkaline earth metals (red) always form +2 ions. The halogens (blue) always form -1 ions. Many of the transition metals (orange) can have more than one charge.

Are ions safe?
