what ions are present in (NH4)2SO4? also, when I am looking to identify which ions are within a compound, sometimes the ion element is the same but the electron count is different. How can I tell the difference when I am trying to identify the ion?

Step 1

A chemical compound consists of two or more different elements which are bonded with each other through different types of chemical bonds. A chemical bond is an interaction between two atoms that occurs due to valence shell electrons of an atom.

Step 2

An ionic bond can be defined as the electrostatic force of attraction between cation and anions. Here cation is a positively charged ion which is formed due to loss of electron whereas an anion is formed by the gain of electrons. Because of opposite charges they form a chemical bond with each other called an ionic bond.

Step 3

Since metals tend to lose electrons and form cation whereas non-metals tend to form anions by gaining e...
