Acid Nomenclature

The last, and most difficult step in learning to name ionic compounds is acids. Students often have a lot of difficulty remembering the rules for binary and ternary acids. This worksheet goes over the -ous and -ic rules for ternary acids, as well as the hydro- rule for binary acids. Students will need to copy of a polyatomic ions reference list with their periodic table to be able to complete this worksheet.

Essential concepts: Acid nomenclature, binary acids, ternary acids.
