Practice Naming Binary Compounds
Why?
When you began chemistry class this year, you probably already knew that the chemical formula
for carbon dioxide was CO2. Today you will find out why CO2 is named that way. Naming
chemical compounds correctly is very important. The slight difference between the names
carbon monoxide (CO, a poisonous, deadly gas) and carbon dioxide (CO2, a greenhouse gas that
we exhale when we breathe out) can be the difference between life and death! In this activity you
will learn the naming system for molecular compounds.
Part 1 – Naming Binary Covalent Compounds (Nonmetal + Nonmetal)
