What would a binary ionic compound with the formula FeO be named?

oxide ion
1), an ion’s positive charge is indicated by a roman numeral in parentheses after the element name, followed by the word ion. Thus, Fe2+ is called the iron(II) ion, while Fe3+ is called the iron(III) ion….Naming Ions.

Ion Name
O2− oxide ion
S2− sulfide ion
P3− phosphide ion
N3− nitride ion

Is FeO ionic compounds?

The oxidation state of iron oxide is +3 and +2. The bond formed between iron and oxygen is due to the difference in electronegativity between the two atoms. Since iron is metal and oxygen is non-metal therefore the bonding between oxygen and iron is ionic.

What is FeS in periodic table?

iron(II) sulfide.

Why FeS is a compound?

Fe is the symbol for iron (a transition metal), and S is the symbol for sulfur (a nonmetal). When the iron atoms bond with the sulfur atoms, they create a sulfide anion with a charge of 2-, and an iron cation, with a charge of 2+, hence the (II). This compound is used in the stainless steel and iron industries.

Why is FeO called Iron II?

Why is FeO named iron II oxide? FeO is the molecular formula for iron (II) oxide. Because iron forms more than one cation, or positive ion, the Roman numeral II is used to distinguish it from the iron (III) cation.

Is Fe3O4 ferric or ferrous?

Ferrosoferric oxide

PubChem CID 14789
Dates Modify 2022-07-02 Create 2005-08-08
Description Ferrosoferric oxide is an iron oxide. ChEBI Iron (II,III) oxide (Fe3O4). It is a black ore of IRON that forms opaque crystals and exerts strong magnetism. Medical Subject Headings (MeSH)

What is the difference between FeO Fe2O3 and Fe3O4?

They are ferrous oxides. Thus, Fe2O3 is a simple oxide where Fe is only + 3 in the oxidation state thus Fe3O4 is a mixed oxide where Fe is present in both + 2 and + 3 oxidation states. However, we compose Fe3O4 as FeO. Fe2O3 is written as iron oxide (III) while Fe3O4 is written as iron oxide (II, III).
