HCl → shares 2 e- to form a covalent bond
Recall that the symbol for an element or ion is as follows:
From the periodic table:
For a neutral element the number of protons and electrons are equal (no ions formed) which means that:
Hydrogen has three isotopes (1H, 2H, and 3H), and chlorine has two isotopes (35Cl and 37Cl).
Tell how many protons, neutrons, and electrons 2H35Cl contains.
