In this item, we are tasked to write the formula for the given acids. To do this, we must follow the given rules:

  • For binary acids:

    identify the nonmetal or polyatomic ion used If the acid starts with hydro, then it is a binary acid, we only need to write H + nonmetal or polyatomic ion. Write the charges Add a subscript that will make the net charge zero.

  • For oxyacids:

    Identify the oxyanion in the acid. Write H + the symbols of oxyanion Determine the charges for each ion Add a subscript that will make the net charge zero.
