In this way, what is the formula of hydroxide?
Similarly, how do you find the formal charge? The formal charge is determined by thevalenceelectrons (VE), nonbonding electrons (NE), and bondingelectrons(BE) in the following formula: By calculating theformalcharge of each atom in a molecule, we can determinethe overallcharge of the molecule.
Regarding this, what is the charge for the hydroxide ion in NaOH?
The formula for hydroxide is OH-. Inthiscompound, oxygen bonds with hydrogen by sharingtwoelectrons. Hydroxide carries a negativechargebecause it has gained an electron.
How many electrons are in a hydroxide ion?
