On Tuesday, November 2nd, wewent over a quick review on Ionic Bonding and then proceeded to learn/review how to name Ionic Compounds. The process is as follows:
  • Write the name of the cation(positive metal ion)
  • Write the name of the antion (negative non-metal ion)
- Drop the ending and add -ide* (ex: calcium Chloride)

*If a polyatomic ion is formed, look up the name. (ex: NaNO3= Sodium Nitrate)

*If transition metals are involved, determine the amount of electrons lost, and use roman numerals to indicate the charge in the name (ex:FeCl2= Iron (II) Chloride)

We then proceeded to finish the third column of the table on pages 7 and 8, and then we worked on pages 11, 12, 13, and 14 in our composition notebooks as a class. As we did not get to finish page 14, it was assigned as homework, along with our Webassigns and the Chemthink. As a reminder, we have a Quest on this unit on Thursday.
