An ionic compound is named first by its cation and then by its anion. The cation has the same name as its element. For example, K+1 is called the potassium ion, just as K is called the potassium atom. The anion is named by taking the elemental name, removing the ending, and adding “-ide.”
Herein, what is an example of a monatomic ion?
A monatomic ion is an ion consisting of exactly one atom. If an ion contains more than one atom, even if these are of the same element, it is called a polyatomic ion. For example, calcium carbonate consists of the monatomic ion Ca2+ and the polyatomic ion CO32−.
Which elements are Monatomic?
The noble gases exist as monatomic elements:
- helium (He)
- neon (Ne)
- argon (Ar)
- krypton (Kr)
- xenon (Xe)
- radon (Rn)
- oganesson (Og)
What is the most stable monatomic ion formed from nitrogen?
Fluorine is a group 7A element. Neutral atom of Fluorine has 7 valence electrons. To acquire noble gas configuration it has only 1 less electron so it gains 1 electron and complete its valence shell and acquire stable configuration so the most stable mono atomic ion formed by Fluorine is F^-1.
