Questions & Answers

Q: What are the names of the elements in Group 1 of the periodic table, and what charge do they form when they become ions?

The elements in Group 1, also known as the alkaline metals, include hydrogen, lithium, sodium, potassium, rubidium, and cesium. When they form ions, they tend to form ions with a positive one charge.

Q: How do you distinguish between an atom and a molecule?

Atoms are individual particles of an element, while molecules consist of two or more atoms bonded together. Elements can exist as atoms or molecules, with molecules containing different types of atoms.

Q: What are the properties of metalloids, and can you provide examples?

Metalloids are elements that have properties in between metals and non-metals. Examples include boron, silicon, and germanium. Metalloids can conduct a small amount of electricity, unlike non-metals.

Q: How do you determine the chemical formula of an ionic compound?

To determine the formula of an ionic compound, you need to balance the charges of the ions present. The charges can be determined based on the periodic table and the oxidation states of the elements involved.
