Problem

The compound NCl3 is nitrogen trichloride, but AlCl3 is simply aluminum chloride. Why? Check all that apply.

a. The compound NCl3 is an ionic compound (metal and nonmetal), and therefore does not require prefixes\- -so NClis nitrogen trichloride.

b. The compound AlClis an ionic compound (metal and nonmetal), and therefore does not require prefixes\- -so AlCl3 is aluminum chloride.

c. AlClis a molecular compound (two or more nonmetals), and therefore in its name prefixes indicate the number of each type of atom\- -so AlCl3 is aluminum chloride.

d. NCl3 is a molecular compound (two or more nonmetals), and therefore in its name prefixes indicate the number of each type of atom\- -so NClis nitrogen trichloride.

e. None of the above.
