QUESTION

# What are the cations and anions for the formula CuBr2?

Cation = Cu^(2+) Anion = Br^-

Bromine is a halogen (group 7A, or Group 17 using IUPAC). Halide ions will have a -1 charge.

You can use the charge of the bromide ion to deduce the charge of the copper cation. Since must be electrically neutral, the copper must have a charge of +2 since there are two -1 bromide ions.
