Q: For this discussion describe how the absolute value of the charge of the ion is used to determine the chemical formula of ionic compounds.

A: When writing chemical formulas for ionic compounds, each formula differs depending on the compound. When the transition ionic compound *(metals and nonmetals), the ions for the transition metals greatly vary. In formulas, the transition metals tend to have Roman numerals. These Roman numerals are not the quality of the element, but it’s the charge. In writing a formula
