Naming for Quiz 2

Postby Ariana de Souza 4C » Sat Oct 22, 2016 10:18 pm

Will we be expected to be able to know the formula for polyatomic and other species for the second quiz? Or will the formulas be explicitly given to us? Thanks

Based on the Quiz 2 preparation quiz in the workbook, you don't need to know the polyatomic ions or they're given to you. Though I'd say it's good to know some of the frequently used polyatomic ions like sulfate, just in case.

What would be some polyatomic ions we should know for the quiz?

It would be good to know ammonium, nitrite, nitrate, sulfite, sulfate, hydroxide, phosphate, carbonate, and peroxide.

Naming compounds was covered in the very beginning of the course reader, so I'm expecting that we should know the simple rules that were outlined there. Besides, even if we aren't going to be quizzed on it, I feel that it would be helpful to know it anyways.

I asked the TA about this question and he said that you do not have to know any of them and all the formulas will be given to you.

Overall I feel it is always good to know/memorize some of the simple polyatomic ions but for the most part it seems that the homework and workbook questions provide the names so I believe it will be provided as stated before.
