(Thinking) Uh, quick question. What would be the correct formula for Cobalt (II) Chlorate? I have Co(ClO3).Why would the parenthesis be used in this situation. In general?
In addition, I'm stuck on the nomenclature for CrPO4. I'm geussing that it's chromium phosfate, but I can't figure out chromium's charge.
And finally, I am studying for a High School (11th grade) test on nomenclature and chemical reactions. Please help, it would be greatly appreciated.(Bow)
We know that cobalt is given as and chlorate refers to a group of atoms with an overall negative charge, i.e.
So we know two chlorates is needed to combine with to give a neutral compound:
As for , the phosphate ion is also polyatomic like chlorate and has an overall charge of -3, i.e. .
Since only one chromium ion is needed to take out the charge, that must mean its ion has a charge of +3. So, the nomenclature for the compound must be chromium (III) phosphate.
Thank you uh, 0_o. I feel a bit dumb now that I look at it. Must've been a bit spaced yesterday.
And the primero espada thing... Is that a Bleach reference, or do you just like being called "first sword"?
Yes, a bleach reference. Go Stark!
