the answer is there is a one-to-one ratio of potassium ions to iodide ions.
- (k) belongs to alkali metals in group (1a) that contains (1) electron in the outermost energy level, whereas, (i) is from halogens in group (7a) that contains (7) electron in the outermost energy level.
- to achieve stability, both atoms tend to reach the nearest noble state (outermost level occupies 8 electrons). therefore, (k) loses its outer electron and gives it to (i) which now has a completely filled outer level and an ionic bond is formed between the two.
- the valency (number of electrons lost, gained or shared) of both atoms is equal ”monovalent” which means one-to-one ratio..
d. but this formula is weird we take the mass 25 multiply by 10.5 we get 262.5
a. we divide 25 / 10.5 we get 0.42
hope i can at least little
i believe the correct answer would be:
d. nonmetals are nonconductors.
but correct me if i'm wrong. have a nice one!
answer; ///i do believe that the correct answer is (b); ///particle composed of two or more atoms bonded together; //////////////
