10.1: Ions and Ion Formation

Difficulty Level: At Grade Created by: CK-12

Student Behavioral Objectives

  • The students will define an ion.
  • The students will identify the atoms most likely to form positive ions, and the atoms most likely to form negative ions.
  • The students will explain why atoms form ions.
  • The students will predict the charge on ions from the electron affinity, ionization energies, and electron configuration of the atom.
  • The students will describe how atoms form an ionic bond.
  • The students will state why, in terms of energy, atoms form ionic bonds.
  • The students will state the octet rule.
  • Given the symbol of a representative element, the students will indicate the most likely number of electrons the atom will gain or lose.
  • Given the electron configuration of a representative element, the students will indicate the most likely number of electrons the atom will gain or lose.
  • Given the successive ionization energies of a metallic atom, the students will indicate the most likely number of electrons the atom will lose during ionic bond formation.
