Elements are made up of tiny particles called atoms.
Atoms are not created or destroyed in chemical reactions.
All atoms of a given element are identical.
Atoms are indivisible in chemical reactions.
All of these statements are true according to modern atomic theory.

Ions are formed by changing the number of protons in an atom’s nucleus.
Ions are formed by removing electrons from a neutral atom.
An ion has a positive or negative charge.
Metals tend to form positive ions.
