I asked my TA and she said that we would not need to know how acids or named because that will not be covered on the exam. I asked her because one of the homework problems said to name the acid. She reassured me that because Lavelle never went over it in class you will not be expected to name them, only recognize they are acids. She also told me that you will not have to know an acid given it’s name. Lavelle will give you the molecular formula. She did say that it is helpful if you pick up and just memorize some of the basic ones like hydrochloric acid.
Yes I think just memorizing the strong acids and acetic acid should be enough, but I feel like Lavelle would include the chemical formula on the test since we haven't learned how to name acids yet.
I agree with the others that we would not be tested on the naming of the acids since we have yet to learn how to do this and will most likely learn it in Chem14B instead if we were to learn it. Good luck on the final!
