why do positive ions and negative ions form?

  • chemistry -

    Neutral atoms form + ions when they lose one or more electrons.
    Neutral atoms form - ions when they gain one or more electrons.

    I need help to complete and balance the following acid/base neutralization reaction.

    H2SO4(aq)+Na2SO3(aq)

    Thanks!

  • chemistry -

    H2SO4 + Na2SO3 ==> H2SO3 + Na2SO4
    It isn't a very good example of an acid/base reaction. I would prefer to see it called a double replacement or double displacement reaction.
