What is Ca3n2?

Ca3n2 is a chemical compound made up of calcium and nitrogen in a 3:2 ratio. It is a red-brown, crystalline substance that can be used in a wide range of applications.

It is a polar compound, which means that it has permanent dipole-moments between the two components of the molecule. This is because the asymmetric structure of the molecule makes it difficult to cancel out the dipole-moments by the same amount.

The bond angle of Ca3N2 is around 1040. This is similar to the bond angle of water, which is about 1200.

Calcium is an electropositive element that accepts electrons from its valence shell to form a cation. Nitride is an anionic form of nitrogen that accepts three extra electrons to complete its octet.

Generally, when you see the chemical formulas of two elements, one is usually an electropositive element and the other is an anionic element. But you can sometimes see that some of the molecules have both ionic and non-ionic character.

On electrolysis, Ca3N2 becomes a strong electrolyte because it breaks down into two different ions - Ca2+ and N-. The ions of Ca2+ are deposited in the anode while N- is deposited in the cathode.

There is a permanent dipole-moment between the electropositive Ca and the electronegative N site of the molecule. This is why Ca3N2 is a polar compound.
