acid names

Postby 005199302 » Sun Dec 02, 2018 3:21 pm

Are we expected to know the formula for acetic acid, phosphoric acid, bromous acid, etc.?

I'm not sure, but I think we're probably expected to know the strong acids.

I'm also not completely sure, but I think it would be a good idea to memorize the names and chemical formulas for the weak and strong acids and bases that Professor Lavelle specifically discussed and listed out during lecture

I think we definitely need to know the formula for acetic acid and know strong acids as well.

I'm not sure but it would probably be good to know the common ones like acetic acid and it wouldn't hurt to learn other ones as well.

I think we should know some of the strong acids.

I personally would memorize the more common acids and bases, especially if they appear on the homework.

I would know all the strong acids and some of the weak acids too. Especially some of the ones used in biological models.

I would look at the most common acids. Mostly strong acids. Also would look at the acids used in practice problems.
