A)Calcium ions and nitrate ions
Calcium ion is Ca2+
Nitrate ion is NO3-
Therefore, the chemical formed by the two ions is
B)Magnesium ions and iodide ions
Magnesium ion is Mg2+
Iodide ion is I-.
To balance the two positive charges in Mg2+, we need to have 2 I-. the chemical is called magnesium iodide, and its formula is MgI2
