Determining the Conjugate Acids Ann Bases

Postby Bailey Giovanoli 1L » Sun Dec 06, 2020 8:04 pm

On 6A.7 in the textbook, you are asked to name the molecules in the image and find their conjugate base. I understand how to find the conjugate base, however, I am struggling with naming acids like H2NO. Does anyone have any tips on naming acids?

Hi! I think most of the time with acids, the name becomes whatever the anion's name was with an -ic at the end. For example, HCl: the chlorine on it's own is Cl- and is called a chloride anion and then once it's attached to the H, it becomes hydrochloric acid (the hydro was also added in because of the hydrogen). I hope this helps!
