  • Excess ions are subsequently pumped in/out of the neuron. (bris.ac.uk)
  • The key component was positively charged copper ions at the catalyst surface. (eurekalert.org)
  • Most water deionizers are filled with a resin that bonds with all other types of ions and removes them from the water, leaving only the hydrogen and hydroxyl ions behind. (ehow.co.uk)
  • The method of accelerating the ions varies, but all designs take advantage of the charge / mass ratio of the ions. (wikipedia.org)
  • According to Visionlearning.com, a typical atom has no electrical charge because the number of positively charged protons is the same as the number of negatively charged electrons. (reference.com)
  • in other words, the net charge on the protein will be the same sign as that of the counterions displaced-therefore "ion exchange. (wikibooks.org)
  • The charge on a proton is measured as +1 (positively charged). (wikipedia.org)
  • Two ions of the same charge will move apart. (wikipedia.org)
  • Most ions have a charge of less than 4, but some can have higher charges. (wikipedia.org)
  • Reciprocal and reversible transfer of ions of the same charge between a solution and a relatively insoluble solid in contact with it. (getty.edu)
  • Write the chemical shorthand (chemical symbol with the charge as a superscript) for the most common ions of the following elements. (oocities.org)
  • The charge on an ion refers to the number of electrons lost or gained. (oocities.org)
  • Note that the Roman numeral following the metal name is the same as the charge of the ion. (oocities.org)
  • In connection with acids, hydrogen ions typically refer to hydrons . (wikidoc.org)
  • [1] They are attracted to anodes (positively charged electrodes). (wikipedia.org)
  • ammonium The chemical ion (NH 4 +) derived from ammonia that does not appear in a free state, but forms salts and compounds analogous to those of the alkali metals. (amnh.org)
