Solution: Determine the name for aqueous HBr.A) bromic acidB) bromous acidC) hydrogen bromateD) hydrobromic acidE) hydrobromous acid


Determine the name for aqueous HBr.

A) bromic acid

B) bromous acid

C) hydrogen bromate

D) hydrobromic acid

E) hydrobromous acid


We’re being asked to name the acid aqueous HBr

Recall that acids come in two different forms: Binary acids and Oxyacids (or oxoacids).

A binary acid is a covalent compound that contains an H+ ion connected to negative ion

An oxyacid is a covalent compound that contains an H+ ion connected to a polyatomic ion containing oxygen

Rules for Naming Binary Acids:

a. The prefix will be hydro-

b. Use the base name of the nonmetal (anion)
