Homework Help: ionic compounds!

Posted by betty on Saturday, June 17, 2006 at 1:27pm.

why are ionic compounds abundant in nature?


Betty, I don't know how to answer your question. Abundant compared to what? How is abundant defined? I would think there are more covalent compounds in nature than ionic compounds but I may be wrong. Can you clarify the question a little?


Because most pure elements have electron outter shell charges that can either give up one or two electrons (like sodium), or can take on one or two electrons (like chlorine). When they do this they become more stable (like salt Sodium Chloride)and are more likely to be found in this state in nature.
