3.1 Naming Compounds
Transcript of 3.1 Naming Compounds
H20 = 2 Hydrogen
When compounds have letters next to them, for example H2O(l) that means that H2O is a liquid.
It is the same if there is a (g) or an (s) next to the compound too.
Chemical formula- A chemical formula identifies which elements are in the compound and how much of each.
Table sugar = C12H22O11
which is 12 Carbon, 22 Hydrogen, and 11
CH4(g)= 1 Carbon, 4 Hydrogen
Did you know that even everyday household items and 'foods' you have in your house, such as table sugar, are actually compounds and made out of chemicals?
Every compound has its chemical name, even table salt.
Its true! Even lipstick and toothpaste are chemical formulas.
The Process of Naming a Compound
In 1787, a French chemist named Guyton de Morveau created a naming system for compounds. He decided to use the chemical name for each element in the compound, always putting the metal element first. (EX: Zinc+ Oxygen= Zinc Oxide)
