But before that;
It is important to understand what exactly the ionic charge is.

Ionic charge: Ionic charge is the electrical charge that is generated on the atom when it loses or gains electron/s.
When the atom loses electron/s, it forms positively charged ion and when it gains electron/s, it forms negatively charged ion.

Now let’s see the common ionic charge of all the elements of periodic table.
