AB
anionany atom or group of atoms that has a negative charge
law of multiple proportionsWhenever two elements form more than one compound, the different masses of one element that combine with the same mass of the other element are in the ratio of small whole numbers
baseionic compound that produces hydroxide ions when dissolved in water
ionic compoundscompounds composed of metal cations and nonmetal anions
binary compoundcomposed of two elements and can be either ionic or molecular
monatomic ionan ion consisting of a single atom with a positive or negative charge
cationany atom or group of atoms that has a positive charge
polyatomic iona tightly bound group of atoms that behaves as a unit and carries a charge
acidscompounds that contain one or more hydrogen atoms and produce hydrogen ions in solution
law of definite proportionsIn samples of any chemical compound, the masses of the elements are always in the same proportions any atom or group of atoms that has a negative charge
naming binary ionic compoundsplace cation name first followed by the anion name
naming polyatomic containing ionic compoundsplace name of polyatomicor monatomic cation first followed by polyatomic or monatomic anion
