What does it mean when a question asks to form a compound with a 1:1 ratio?
Could you be more specific? I guess that it means two elements are combined, in equal proportions, to make up a compound.
The question gives me 2 colomns, 3 substances in each colomn. It says to name the three chemical compounds that can be formed between the elements.
The elements are:
Colomn A- Ca, K, Al
Colomn B- N, O, F
You don't need to tell me the answers, just tips on how to get it please.
Does it specify one from each column, or can you have two from one and one from the other? If it's the latter, then it's a lot easier!
I can't really give hints, as I don't know what to say. For one, think quicklime.
I can use one from the left, then one from the right, kind of like that.
combine the elements to a compound then! eg: C for carbon and o2 for oxygen
combine them and you get Co2 carbon dioxide!
easy, as long as you know the compounds and their symbols
If you are asked to combine the elements in a 1:1 fashion, only elements of equal valences (but opposite in sign) will do that.
Separate names with a comma.
