**All acids are aqueous
To go from the name to getting a formula:* Take acid name, and work back to the name of the polyatomic ion.*Take the formula for the polyatomic ion you found, with the charge, and add Hydrogen to form an acid.* “Cris-cross” the charges from the polyatomic ion and hydrogen.
To go from a formula to getting a substance name:* Separate your formula into Hydrogen and one Polyatomic Ion, then “inverse criss-cross” to get the charges.* Take the name of your polyatomic ion, and change the suffix’s.
HNO3(aq)➜H+ + NO3-(Nitrate)➜Nitrite=Nitrousacid
H2SO4(aq)➜H+ + SO42-(Sulfate)➜Sulfate=Sulfuric acid
H3PO4(aq)➜H+ + PO43-(Phosphate)➜Phosphate=Phosphoric acid.
