Response: The overall charge of this ion is -3.Solution: Protons : These are the sub-atomic species that carries a positive charge.Electrons-These are subatomic species that carries the negative charge.Neutrons: These are the sub-atomic species that do not carry any kind of charge.The net charge of the ion will be = (number of protons)(charge carried by the proton.) + (the total number of electrons)(charge transported by the electrons)number of protons = 7Numbers of electrons = 10So, the net charge on the nitride ion =
