monophosphorous trichloride
How many electrons does the Al3+ ion possess?


Expert Answer

Step 1

2. A positive ion is formed by losing electrons.

The number on the charge indicates the number of electrons lost.



Step 2

The given ion is Al3+

It is formed by losing 3 electrons.

The atomic number of Aluminum is 13.

It has 13 electrons and 13 protons.

By losing 3 electrons from 13 electrons, it has remaining 10 electrons.


Step 3


Chemistry homework question answer, step 3, image 1 has total 10 electrons.
