Can ions be subdivided too?
Molecules can be divided into atoms and atoms can be divided into ions(cations and anions).
So can ions be subdivided too?

"ion" is the term we use to describe a non-neutral particle. That particle doesn't have to be polyatomic nor monatomic
these are all ions
.. H+, Na+, Cl-, Fe+3... etc
.. SO4(2-), SO3(2-), ClO(-), H3O(+)
can they be subdivided? certainly the polyatomic ones can be. And I suppose you could remove electrons from all of those listed except H+ so they can be divided too.

There are some ions that are "polyatomic" ions. This includes ions such as NO3^- and SO4^2- and many others. This can be divided, but monatomic ions cannot be.

Atoms do not get divided into ions. Ions are atoms that have either lost or gained an electron, causing a charge. They aren t smaller constituents of an atom.

ions are atoms. they just possess a charge imbalance. One can "subdivide" atoms into protons, neutrons, and electrons.
