Quiz 3 Prep 2 # 2

Postby Krishil_Gandhi_1D » Mon Nov 14, 2016 4:38 pm

For # 2 on the quiz 3 prep 3 in the workbook, why is Br written before the NH3 in the solutions?? Alphabetically, wouldn't ammine come before bromo because well 'a' comes before 'b'??
Thanks.

You go by alphabetical order when you are NAMING the compound, but when you are writing the formula, you write the anion ligand before the neutral ligand.

Why is the second question of number 5 of the Quiz 3 prep have an ion at the end?
