CBSE Class 9 Answered

maam i wanted to know the reason as to why an ion is more stable than an atom

Expert Answer
Dear student
Yes Ions are more stable than the atom they came from because they have a full outer shell (valence shell). There are cations (atoms that lose 1 or more electrons to have a full outer shell) and anions (atoms that gain 1 or more electrons to have a full outer shell). Usually atoms are reactive with one another, either wanting to gain or lose electrons
We hope that clarifies your query.
