Solution: Write the formula for each molecular compound.disulfur tetrafluoride

Problem

Write the formula for each molecular compound.

disulfur tetrafluoride

Solution

A covalent compound is composed of two different nonmetals in different proportions. The rules for naming covalent compounds are as follows:

1. The first nonmetal is named normally and uses all numerical prefixes except mono.

2. The second nonmetal keep its base name but has its ending changed to –ide.
