Which valences have the greatest tendency to form ions? +1-1+2-2+3-3+4-4
Ions may be defined as the molecules that contains charge in their structure. Ions that carry positive change is known as cations and ions that carry negative charge are known as anions.
The velency may be defined as the number of electrons present in the outermost shell. The +1 has the highest tendency to form cations because a little amount of ionization enthalpy is required to remove the 1 electrons. The -1 has highest tendency to form anion as it has the most negative electron gain enthalpy and can easily gains an electron.
Thus, the answer is +1 and -1.
+2 and -2
+3 and -3
+1, -1, +2, -2, +3, and -3 are the answers 🙂
-Valence is the number of electrons lost or gained to complete an element's outer energy level.
-When an atom gains or loses a valence electron, it forms an ion. Atoms form ions in order to help another to obtain a full octet and to stabilize the valence.
-Some atoms gain or lose electrons to form ions because they need to become more stable. They sometimes give them to have an outer shell or gain them to get a closer charge to eight.
The answer would be F.
F has the greatest tendency to form ions.
