Need help with these questions:
1.When a calcium atom forms an ion, it loses two electrons. What is the electrical charge of the calcium ion?
2.Which particle builds a static electrical charge when it is transferred from one object to the other?
I think this one might be A or B...
3.What causes nickel and certain other metals to be magnetic?
A.the influence of earth's magnetic field
