A positive ion is a molecule that has a non zero charge. This is due to the molecule losing one or more electon(s). This results in a positive charge as there are now more protons (which are postive) than electrons (negative) causing an overall postive charge. An example of a positive ion is Na+. This has 11 protons and 10 electrons.

A positive [[ion|ion]] is an [[atom|atom]] or a [[molecule|molecule]] that has a non zero charge. This is due to the molecule losing one or more [[Electron|electron]](s). This results in a positive charge as there are now more [[protons|protons]] (which are postive) than electrons (negative) causing an overall postive charge. An example of a positive ion is [[Sodium_ion|Na<sup>+</sup>]]. This has 11 protons and 10 electrons.&nbsp;

A positive ion is an atom or a molecule that has a non zero charge. This is due to the molecule losing one or more electron(s). This results in a positive charge as there are now more protons (which are postive) than electrons (negative) causing an overall postive charge. An example of a positive ion is Na+. This has 11 protons and 10 electrons.
