Question about atoms.

  1. So if a Titanium Ion has a charge of +2, does that mean it has a whole charge of twice the electron 2Xe?

    I don't rally understand what you meant.

    If it has a charge of +2 , it means that it has lost 2 electrons.
  4. Right sorry I meant -2, if there is an ion with -2 would it have s total charge of 2xe?

    Yes. It's because it has gained two electrons. It was previously having a net charge of 0. Now that it has gained two electrons it will have a net charge of double the charge of an electron
  6. Yes!! And the value is 3.2*10^(-19)
