A cation is an ion with a positive charge.
A cation has more protons than electrons, consequently giving it a net positive charge.
For a cation to form, one or more electrons must be lost, typically pulled away by atoms with a stronger affinity for them.

* formation of positive ion is an endothermic.
* the numbers of positive charge on cation depends upon the number of atoms lost by the atom.
* properties of cations are different from the neutral atom.
