Name each acid. (Hint: The names of the oxyanions are analogous to the names of the oxyanions of chlorine.)
To name oxyacids, you must first be able to recognize them by the general formula HaXbOc, with X representing an element other than hydrogen or oxygen. It will also be useful for you to know the names of the polyatomic oxyanions, because many oxyacid names are derived from them. If enough H+ ions are added to a (root)ate polyatomic ion to completely neutralize its charge, the (root)ic acid is formed.
