Asked by Bonnie

A negative ion is formed by metals/non-metals?

A negative ion is formed when an element gains one or more electrons. For example, chlorine (Cl) can gain an electron to form Cl- When non-metals and metals bind, they can do so ionically. For example, sodium (Na) and chlorine (Cl) bond as: Na+ + Cl- > NaCl
