QUESTION

# What is the ionic compound formula of magnesium nitrate?

Magnesium Nitrate is an ionic compound formed by Magnesium Mg^+2 the cation and Nitrate NO_3^- the polyatomic anion.

In order for these two ions to bond the charges must be equal and opposite. Therefore, it will take two -1 nitrate ions to balance the one +2 magnesium ion. This will make the formula for Magnesium Nitrate Mg(NO_3)_2.
