What is the chemical formula for lithium hydroxide?

Apr 15, 2017

Answer:

$L i O H$

Explanation:

Lithium is a Group 1 metal and commonly forms a ${M}^{+}$ ion.

Hydroxide anion, ""^(-)OH, has a unit negative charge. When they make music together, there is thus 1:1 stoichiometry between ions:

$L i \left(s\right) + {H}_{2} O \left(l\right) \rightarrow L i O H \left(a q\right) + \frac{1}{2} {H}_{2} \left(g\right) \uparrow$
