H2O made of H and O and

HNO3 made of H and NO3 and

NaOH made of Na and OH and

LiOH made of Li and OH and

HI made of H and I and

NaCl made of Na and Cl and

Ca(OH)2 made of Ca and OH and

CH3COOH made of H and CH3COO and

Write the formula for the following:

Magnesium hydroxide

Calcium sulfate

Sodium iodide

Lithium acetate

Sodium hydroxide

Hydrobromic acid

Sodium acetate

Hydrochloric acid









Write the following equations as word sentences:

Ca(OH)2 + H2SO4 --> 2H2O + CaSO4

HCl + NaOH --> NaCl + H2O

CH3COOH + KOH --> KCH3COO + H2O (Hint: the common name for CH3COOH is "vinegar", and the common name for CH3COO- is "acetate")


Balance this equation:
H3PO4 + NaOH --> Na3PO4 + H2O


Given that HNO3 is nitric acid and that H2SO4 is sulfuric acid, what do you suppose the name for H3PO4 should be?

Write the product half of these acid/base reactions:

NaOH + HBr --->


HNO3 + KOH --->


Write the reactant half of these acid/base reactions:

                                                 --->     LiCl + H20


                                                 --->    KCH3COO + H2O


Make up an acid/base reaction that is not seen on this sheet:
