Atoms of different elements join together in definite proportions to form molecules of compounds. Examples— water, ammonia, carbondioxide. Compounds composed of metals and non-metals contain charged species. The charged species are known as ions. An ion is a charged particle and can be negatively or positively charged. A negatively charged ion is called an anion and the positively charged ion is called cation. Examples— sodium chloride, calcium oxide.
