      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 9. 
    Let's find out what Al + O_2 is. The Al ion has a ___ charge. The O_2 ion has a ___ charge. Thus, when we combine them, we get 
    • A. 

      2-, 3+, Al_2 O_3

    • B. 

      3+, 2-, Al_3 O_2

    • C. 

      3+, 2-, Al_2 O_3

    • D. 

      2-, 3+, Al_3 O_2

  • 10. 
    Unfortunately, Al + O_2 --> Al_2 O_3 makes no sense because it isn't balanced. Balance it
