The chemical formula for each of the given compounds is to be given. Concept Introduction: Two or more different elements or ions linked by chemical bonds in definite proportions, is known as a compound. A set of chemical symbols represent the elements that exist in a compound. The more metallic element is generally written first, and the less metallic element is written next for the naming of a molecular compound. The prefix represents the number of atoms of each element present in each molecule and a suffix ide is used with the second element. Ionic compounds are named by writing the name of cation (metal), followed by anion (non-metal) with a suffix “ide”. While naming the ionic compounds prefixes such as di or tri are not used to indicate any number of atoms.
