Nomenclature of Simple Compounds Using Stock Notation
This is a basic exercise in naming simple compounds which contain metals. Since its effective use requires analysis of text input there are some basic rules:
- Stock notation must be used on this page.
- Common names such as "ferrous" are not used.
- Spelling matters very much. No effort has been made to analyze input against possible spelling errors. There is a button below which can be pushed to display the spelling of all polyatomic ions used on this page.
- Capitalization does not matter, the page can adjust for improper capitalization.
- Pressing "New Compound" displays a formula to the right of the table.
- Enter the name in the cell, breaking it into three parts and omitting the parentheses around the Roman numeral.
for example FeCl3 would be iron IV chloride.
- Press "Check Answer."
- Results and score
- If you miss a problem three times, pressing "Show Answer" will display the answer.
