it depends....is the carbon giving an electron or taking one?
Dogs are cats?
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?
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
Any other compound containing the group CO3. Carbonates include minerals such as calcite and aragonite.
i don't know sorry
The charge is negative two.
DUDE WE HAVE TH SAME FRIGGIN WORKBOOK!!!! HAHAAH sooo wanna gimme the answers from 7 to uhh20? Haha
the charge is -2 but I'm nott shurr how many electrons there are .... any help.?
hey bch wanna fk my coc ?
I need help with the first part.
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.
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
yes that's right
