Question:

Which group of the periodic table of elements forms only 1+ ions?

Why?

Periodic Table Properties:

The periodic table of elements houses all the elements that are identified in the universe. The elements are arranged in the increasing order of their atomic numbers. Many parameters like atomic size, ionization energy, electronegativity, and electron affinity can be observed and identified using the periodic table.

Answer and Explanation:

To identify the group which forms only 1+ ions.

A periodic table is attached below for easy understanding.

The elements which form +1 ions are found in the Group 1 of the periodic table.

Group 1 comprises of the 's' block elements with only one electron in the s orbital.

The group-1 elements from the +1 oxidation state because it can obtain the most stable noble gas configuration by losing one electron.
