(a) sodium hypochlorite

(b) boron triiodide

(c) aluminum perchlorate

(d) calcium acetate

(e) potassium permanganate

(f) ammonium sulfite

(g) potassium dihydrogen phosphate

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: For the given compound, the molecular formula should be determined and should be identified that whether it is ionic or not.

Concept introduction:

  • Ionic compounds are formed by the combination of metal and nonmetals or metal and polyatomic ions.
  • Molecular compounds are formed by the combination of nonmetal and nonmetal or metalloid and nonmetal.
  • A chemical formula conveys us the number of atoms of each element in a compound. It contains the symbols of the atoms of the elements present in the compound as well as how many are for each element in the form of subscripts.
