This fundamentals exercise gives names of the compounds being reacted/produced (like (a) Calcium metal reacts with water to produce hydrogen gas and aqueous calcium hydroxide.). I was just wondering if we are going to be expected to know how to write it into an actual chemical equation given just that information or not.

The one you mentioned only has some extremely common compounds. My TA said that it is best that we memorize some common polyatomic ions, like ammonia, carbonate, etc

Hi! I am not very sure if we are expected to memorize compound names, but just to be safe I would say to memorize the common ones. Hope this helps!

I personally am going to memorize a few of the common ones. However, I think it is best to check with the professor or TA just in case to make sure.

Like Inderpal mentioned, I would check with your TA. However, if you are looking to memorize the most common ones, this is a really helpful sheet you can use to memorize them :)
