Comments "Hydration number-Number of water molecules forming a stoichiometric complex with the ion (e.g. [Be(H2O)4]2+). The hydration number gives the number of water molecules in the primary shell, though the total number of water molecules affected can be much larger and depends on the method of measurement."
