Video Transcript

Alright guys, so here we have to give the name and the charges of each ion within the compound. So here we have ALCOO3 and 3. We know the rules for aluminum because aluminum is only +3 so the charge is +3.

This is going to be chlorate, one of your polyatomic ions so you should know that the charge is -1. So in this case to name this all we do is we say it's aluminum, the first atom is going to just stay the same, nothing changes, and the polyatomic ion nothing also changes. You would write it as you would say it, so it's aluminum chlorate. Alright guys, let's move on.
