Finish coming up with the chemical formula for the following ionic bonding combinations of elements.  Remember to complete the two-step process of first drawing out the electron dot diagram for each element involved.  Then show how the electron(s) are transferred to result in the charged ion the element becomes.  Then write your chemical formula that is electrically neutral. (has an overall zero charge)

1)  potassium + fluorine  (done in class)
2)  magnesium + iodine  (done in most classes)
3)  sodium + oxygen
4)  sodium + chlorine
5)  calcium + chlorine
6)  aluminum + chlorine
7)  aluminum + sulfur
