A:

Please ask one query at a time.

 

Formation of Hydroxyl ion:

The hydroxyl ion or hydroxide ion is OH-. It is formed when one hydrogen ion H+ is removed from the water molecule.

H2O → H+ + OH-

When H+ is removed from water molecule, the shared pair of electron remains with oxygen as oxygen is more electronegative and thus hydroxyl ion has negative charge.

Formation of ammonium ion:
