Hi! For the second midterm, does anyone know if we will be expected to write chemical formulas from their names, such as being given "periodate ion" or "arsenate ion" and knowing these are "IO4 -" and "As04 -3"?
I believe the names and chemical formulas would be provided on the test- I don't think we're expected to have memorized them since Dr. Lavelle hasn't taught/tested us on nomenclature yet.
Yes, we havent really been lectured on the naming of compounds yet so I wouldn't worry about that too much for midterm 2. I think once he lectures on it or once it is on the study guide for the test then we will need to know it for that coming exam.
Since it wasn't mentioned in the last midterm either, I'd assume compounds will be provided and that memorizing nomenclature wouldn't be mandatory. Unless he explicitly mentions in an upcoming lecture or revises learning objectives, I don't believe it would be tested on for midterm 2.
