Ions are formed when an atom gains or losses electrons in the case of "salt" sodium is a positively charged ion and cloride or clorine(sp) is a negitive charge.
When they come in close contace they "trade " electrons and thus change charges to become neutral. Ie one looses and one gains the electron.

Do flu shots still contain mercury?

Some large, multi-use containers of flu vaccine contain a trace amount of ethyl mercury, a harmless preservative.

The poisonous forms of mercury are methyl mercury, pure mercury, or mercury vapour.

This is analogous to chlorine, a most toxic gas, and very harmful as hydrochloric acid, yet we eat it every day as common salt, sodium chloride.

If you are still concerned ask for your flu shot to be given from a single use vial, which contains no preservative.

A (n)_________tells what elements make up a compound and the ratios of the atoms of those elements.

It's called a Formula or Formula of a compound.
H2O, NaCl, H2SO4, I believe that's what you're asking about.
H2O is 2 parts Hydrogen to 1 part Oxygen. (Water)
NaCl is 1 part Sodium to 1 part Chlorine (Salt)
H2SO4 is 2 parts hydrogen, 1 part Sulfur, 4 parts Oxygen (Sulfuric acid)

Water in pool seems cloudy now

If it seems clowdy now it is probably low on chlorine and unless this is corrected it will turn green in within a day or two. My suggestion is that you bring a sample of your water to a pool supply store and they will test it. If you have filled the pool recently with new water the two things you should be most concerned about are chlorine, stabilizer ph and alkalinity. Since your pool is clowdy the chlorine should be about 10 ppm and the stabilizer should be between 30 and 50 ppm. If you are short on stabilizer the chlorine will be gone very soon. If you have too much stabilizer the chlorine will say in the pool but it won't be as effective. Since the water is new the ph and alkalinity should be ok but the source of your water might be poor. Alkalinity is based on the amount of sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) in the water. If the level is right it helps keep the ph stable. Most municipalities supply water with 80 ppm of sodium bicarbonate in order to maintain their ph more easily. If the ph is too high it is base and causes the chlorine to be not as effective and it causes other problems when it is too low. Adding acid to the pool reduces the ph and adding sodium carbonate or sodium bicarbonate increases the ph. Since the water is new I would automatically shock the pool to 10 ppm of chlorine and treat with stabilizer to 30 ppm and then see how it goes. I wouldn't let anyone swim until the chlorine drops to between 2 and 4 ppm, the pool bottom is clearly visible and no dirt, etc is visible. I hope this helps.

After bonding atoms we are ask to name the resulting compounds in its common name and as well as its chemical name. so my question is, what is the difference between common names and chemical names? please...

Common name is the name what people call it, it usually gives you no idea as to what the chemical composition of the compound is. (eg: Common name for Sodium Chloride is Salt) whereas the chemical name is based on what the compound is made up of (A molecule of salt is made up of one atom of Sodium and one atom of chlorine. this can be understood from the chemical name, but not from the common name.)

Please restate as a question. Do you mean "what is ionisation?" If so: ionisation is the physical process of converting a molecule or atom into an ion by adding or removing charged particles such as electrons or other ions, to form a charged form of the atom or molecule.

Difference between covalent and ionic compound

In general, the most common covalent compounds do not contain a metal as one of its constituent elements. So, with few exceptions to be mentioned momentarily, if you do not see a metal atom in a formula for a compound, it is probably the formula for a covalent compound. (An exception to this is butyl lithium, BuLi of the class of organometallic compounds, which have very little ionic character, even though they contain an ion.)

Most Ionic compounds contain at least one positively charged metal atom, such as NaCl. The metal is sodium as its positively charged ion, Na+. (There are exceptions to this rule. For example, NH4Cl, ammonium chloride, is an ionic compound, containing the ions, NH4+ and Cl-.)

Suggestion: Memorize the common elements and what ions they can form. Study atomic structure and quantum mechanics theory, the aufbau theory, the major trends of the periodic theory, which will give you a systematic way to estimate or predict the ions and the charges of many of the elements. Knowing the trends and patterns in the periodic table will allow you to easily recognize which elements are metals and which are nonmetals. This knowledge, combined with the rules given above in paragraphs one and two, will empower you to distinguish between covalent and ionic compounds, because you will be able to recognize when a compound contains metals or only nonmetals.

No chlorine reading

Salt is sodium chloride, you can only measure salt levels now as your CL (cloride) is bound to a NA (sodium). Table salt =NACL, Your Intex system will tell you if your salt level is too high or too low but your old test equipment for free chlorine will continue to tell you no chlorine as it can't react with the chloride any longer as it is bound to the salt. That is why they tell you you never have to add more because the salt stabilizes it. Your chlorine is there it's bound to the salt. Use the pool it's fine and it makes your water feel really soft! Just keep the salt level right and your fine> It's confusing as they call the unit a chlorine generator! I had the same issue, called Intex and they told me the above.
