How can I write dissociation equations?
To dissociate means to take apart.
When ionic compounds (compounds made from metals and non-metals) like sodium chloride
When you write a dissociation reaction you separate the two ions, place their charges above their symbols, and then balance the entire equation.
For example, the dissociation of sodium chloride would look like this:
The dissociation of iron(III) sulfate would look like this:
