Naming in Fundamentals J (acids and bases)

Postby AArmellini_1I » Mon Nov 25, 2019 6:26 pm

So I know Lavelle has discussed naming in terms of ligands but do we need to know the names for acids and bases? I only ask because in fundamentals J questions 7 and 9 the questions gives us compounds such as phosphoric acid and phosphate and we are asked to write the balanced chemical equations. Does he expect us to search them up or be able to deduce from the given name? I don't have a strong chemistry background so if we are expected to know it then I need to start learning them now!

In outline 6 Acid and Base Structures and Properties, he states that you must be able to:
- Identify common drinks, foods, and household items as acidic or basic.
- Recognize acids and bases from their formulas and/or structures.
- Identify compounds as Bronsted acids or bases or Lewis acids or bases, and draw their structures.
- Identify polyprotic acids and bases and draw their structures.

I would try to memorize the most common acids and bases (or the ones that show up in the homework problems), especially the strong acids and bases included in the textbook.
