For question 9C.3, the problem tells us to use the table to write the formula for the coordination com#. My question is on the final exam, if we have one of these questions, are we gonna be given the table or do we have to memorize it?
I'm not 100% sure if you'll have to memorize the table, but I think it'd be good to know the general rules. For example, if a complex has a negative charge add -ate to the end of the metal name. Also, add -o to the end of the anion name (i.e. F- is fluoride, but add an -o cuz its an anion and it become fluorido).
I feel like we won't be given this chart and will have to know the general trends, hopefully after a lot of practice these rules pf prefixes and suffixes will start to become routine is the goal I would assume.
