Expert Answer

Step 1

The rules for naming ionic compounds are as follows:

  • The name of the cation (same as the name of metal) should be written first then the anion whose name ends with the suffix -ide.
  • In the case of the transition metals ionic compounds, the charge on metal is written in parent...
