Improved Common Ion Chartfor AP Chemistry
Fellow AP Chem students,Here is a better-organized version of the C
we receivedas part of our summer assignment. I made this chart in order to makestudying and memorizing these ions easier by (a) helping you understandhow many of the ions included in the chart are related and (b) allowing youto separate the ion categories you may already know (such as those withcharges determined by group number) from those you may not.Here are a few notes:1.If a charge is listed without a minus symbol, it is supposed to be positive. (Itried including the
, but Excel would delete it.)2.I have omitted the oxidized polyatomic ions that are further-oxidized or further-reduced forms of the same ion (e.g. sulfite has been omittedbecause it’s a reduced form of sulfate, and sulfate is included). Thus…3.…don’t forget the rules for how nomenclature changes as the number of oxygen atoms increases/decreases.4.Feel free to share this chart with whomever you’d like.Enjoy your year. And don’t forget that CHEMISTRY IS AWESOME,WHOO!
