Ok, time to practice the Acids Nomenclature, this will help you through your school exams, and remember, anything can be achieved with a little practice.
Name these Acids with all 3 nomenclatures; remember to use the tricks we learned.
Name this Acid
Remember how to make Acid formulas? Now we just need to go backwards to figure out which oxidation number the metal is using. Take the oxygen subscript, multiply it by 2 and subtract the Hydrogen subscript.
Now that we know which it is, let’s find the correct suffix to use. It has 4 oxidation numbers:
+1 ----> Hip-----ous
+3 ----> -ous
+5 ----> -ic
+7 ----> Per------ic
Traditional nomenclature has this writing structure:
[ELEMENT NAME][SUFFIX] Acid
So we just need to fill the name of the Non-metal and the suffix
Sulfur has a valence of +6 on this Acid (4x2) – 2 = 6
Sulfuric Acid <--- Traditional
Nitrogen has a valence of +5.
Nitric Acid <--- Traditional
Chlorine has a valence of +1
Hypochlorous Acid <--- Traditional
Carbon has a valence of +4
Carbonic Acid <--- Traditional
Chlorine has a valence of +5
Chloric Acid <--- Traditional
