Textbook Problem

The parts of an atom directly involved in ionic bonding are the:

a. protons in the nucleus.

b. neutrons in the nucleus.

c. electrons in the outer energy shell.

d. electrons in the innermost energy shell.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The parts of an atom that are directly involved in the ionic bonding are to be identified.

Concept Introduction:

Ionic compounds are those compounds that have the strong electrostatic force of attraction between the oppositely charged ions. In the formation of ionic bond, the metal loses electrons and forms a cation and non-metal accepts the electrons to form anion.

Explanation

Reason for correct answer:

The formation of ionic bond involves the complete transfer of electrons from the valence shell or the outer energy shell of the atoms. In this bonding, one of the atoms loses electrons from valence shell and other gains the electron in the valence shell...
