what is the charge on carbonate ion? Compared to the number of protons, how many electrons does the carbonate ion have?

    it depends....is the carbon giving an electron or taking one?

    it doesn't say

    hmmm...you would have the same # of protons and electrons in its normal state, but an ion- the element gives up an ion and another element takes that ion...what is carbonate...carbon and what?

  • 8th grade physical science - ,

    carbonate:
    A salt or ester of carbonic acid, containing the group CO3. The reaction of carbonic acid with a metal results in a salt (such as sodium carbonate), and the reaction of carbonic acid with an organic compound results in an ester (such as diethyl carbonate).

    so CO3 would be that carbon has 6 electrons and oxygen has 8

    meaning that c has 4 electrons in the outer shell and o has 6. they don't make an even 8 so idk how they make and ion because they like to have a full outer shell and those combining wouldnt do that. so imnot sure how to answer that...sorry

    carbonate:
    Any other compound containing the group CO3. Carbonates include minerals such as calcite and aragonite.

    i don't know sorry

    thanks anyways

  • 8th grade physical science - ,

    The charge is negative two.

    THANK YOU!!

    DUDE WE HAVE TH SAME FRIGGIN WORKBOOK!!!! HAHAAH sooo wanna gimme the answers from 7 to uhh20? Haha

  • 8th grade physical science - ,

    the charge is -2 but I'm nott shurr how many electrons there are .... any help.?

  • 8th grade physical science - ,

    hey bch wanna fk my coc ?

  • 8th grade physical science - ,

    I need help with the first part.

  • 8th grade physical science - ,

    I THINK THE NUMBER OF ELECTRONS WOULD BE 2 AND PROTONS 3, ALTHOUGH THAT WOULDNT MAKE SENSE THAT A CARBONATE ION HAS A NEGATIVE CHARGE OVERALL.

  • 8th grade physical science - ,

    Well obviously if you are referring to the carbonate ion its ionic compound is CO3^2- so it would be gaining two electrons in the outermost shell. Therefore making the overall charge of negative two.

    wow what kind of website is this, science isn't even spelled correctly

  • 8th grade physical science - ,

    yes that's right
