A constituent of any salt, acid, or base formed when dissolved in water which is charged with electricity. When the charge is negative, the ion is an anion; when it is positive, the ion is a cation. When sodium chlorid dissolves in water it dissociates into its positive ion (cation) Na and its negative ion (anion) CI.
