starting from carbon what occurs to the ion charge as u move it to right?
In my periodic table Carbon does not have a charge at all; there is just a dash in place of where a charge should be, I'm not really sure what that means.
starting from carbon, what occurs to the ion charge as u move to left?
all I know is that on the left side of carbon there is a metalloid which is boron and it doesn't say the charge there either. there is only a dash in place of wherever that charge should be.
right after that question it asks:
as u move to the right, & down, wat happens to the atomic mass & the atomic number? r there any exceptions to ur answers?
am I supposed to move down one spot from carbon; would that be silicon?
the atomic mass is at 28.09 and the atomic number is 14.
from carbon to the right, ions get more positive (N is -3, O -2, F -1). from carbon to the left, ions get more negative (B+3, Be+2, Li+1)
From carbon down, atomic number increases and atomic mass increases. If you move to the right and down, atomic mass increases, and atomic number increases.
