Which of the following are always larger than the neutral atoms from which they are formed? a. positive ions b. negative ions c. cations d. none of the above

Answers

A. positive ions : Positive ions are formed when a neutral atom loses electrons. When neutral atoms lose electrons, the ions formed are always smaller than the neutral atoms.

B. negative ions : Yes. When the neutral atoms gain electrons to form negative ions, they always become larger, because the addition of one electron increases the electrostatic repulsion of the outermost electrons, forcing them to drift apart.

C. cations  No. Cation is the same that positive ion.

D. none of the above

negetive ions took the test

The best and most correct answer among the choices provided by the question is the first choice "positive ions"

Positive ions are usually carbon dioxide molecules that have been stripped of an electron. Also known as positively charged ions, they have been demonstrated to have a negative effect on your body when you are exposed to them in excess.

I hope my answer has come to your help. God bless and have a nice day ahead!
