    Bond
In summary, based on the given information, Fe_2S_3 is composed of two iron atoms and three sulfur atoms. This is determined by the fact that Fe needs to give 7 electrons to become neutral and S needs to take 2 electrons to become neutral, as shown in the electron configurations of Fe and S.

Fe=[Ar]3p^6 4s^2 it needs to give 7 electrons to become neutral.
S=[Ne]3S^2 3p^4 it needs to take 2 electrons to become neutral.how to describe [itex]Fe_2 S_3[/itex] ??

Please be more specific. Use the template.

What is the actual question?

What are the relevant equations?

What have you done so far?

this is the solution
how they got it from this data:
Fe=[Ar]3p^6 4s^2 it needs to give 7 electrons to become neutral.
S=[Ne]3S^2 3p^4 it needs to take 2 electrons to become neutral.

Your solution is unreadable. You also need to show some work, not just list the question and the answer and expect us to work it out for you.

Related to What Is the Bonding Explanation for Fe2S3?

1. What is a bond?

A bond is a force of attraction between two atoms or molecules that holds them together. It is formed when electrons from each atom interact with each other.

2. How do you describe the strength of a bond?

The strength of a bond is determined by the amount of energy required to break it. The stronger the bond, the more energy is needed to break it.

3. What are the different types of bonds?

There are three main types of bonds: covalent, ionic, and metallic. Covalent bonds involve the sharing of electrons between atoms, ionic bonds involve the transfer of electrons between atoms, and metallic bonds involve the sharing of electrons between a lattice of metal atoms.

4. How does the number of bonds affect the properties of a molecule?

The number of bonds in a molecule can affect its physical and chemical properties. For example, a molecule with multiple covalent bonds may have a higher melting point and be more chemically stable compared to a molecule with fewer bonds.

5. What factors influence the strength of a bond?

The strength of a bond can be influenced by several factors, such as the types of atoms involved, the distance between the atoms, and the electronegativity of the atoms. Additionally, the presence of multiple bonds or the presence of lone pairs of electrons can also affect the strength of a bond.
