So the other day I was doing a HW problem, specifically 3.39, part C. I noticed that the name of the compound was sodium hypochloride. My first instinct was to write out Na for sodium and then H and Cl for hypochloride. However after checking my answer I discovered that hypochloride is composed of O and Cl. How are you supposed to know what elements are being used in the name of a compound? Is there a rule or ia chart? Thank you!
