Textbook Problem

What are the charges of the ions in an ionic compound containing cobalt(III) and fluoride ions? Write the formula for the compound.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The charge on ions present and the formula of the ionic compound formed by cobalt (III ) and fluoride ions are needed to be determined.

Concept introduction:

Ionic compounds are formed by electrostatic attraction between ions such as monoatomic ions and polyatomic ions; in which positively charged ions is known as cations and negatively charged ions are known as anions.

The sum of charges of ions present in an ionic compound is equals to net charge of the compound.

Explanation

Cobalt (III) and fluoride ions are present in the given ionic compound. The charge of cobalt ion is given that 3+ and the charge of group VIIA element F is 1-. So there must be three F ions to balance each Co3+ ion.

The relative number of each ion is indicated in suffix of each ion
