Naming Acids (I did not write this but I wish I had)
Remember that acids ALWAYS start with a hydrogen (H)
-If there are only two types of atoms then the name will begin with the prefix HYDRO and end with the suffix ...IC.
If there is a polyatomic ion (like NO3) then you name the ion and change the suffix ---ATE to ---IC and add the word acid. If the polyatomic ion has the ending ---ITE then it is changed to --- OUS and the word acid is added.
