We are asked to write the chemical formula of hydrates and to use proper symbols, case, and formatting.


Remember that an ionic hydrate is formed when an ionic compound is bonded to one or more molecules of water. Naming ionic hydrates has the same set of rules in naming the ionic compound portion. The water molecule portion is named with a numerical prefix together with the word hydrate.
