Acids - Binary and Ternary -- Chemistry HW 10/3/10

Binary acids, one of two classes of acids, are certain molecular compounds composed of only two elements, hydrogen and a second nonmetallic element from either group 7A or 6A.

Examples: H2O, HF, HCl, HBr, HI , HCl, H2S, HBr, HF, HI

***The names of binary acids begin with hydro- followed by the name of the other element modified to end with -ic.

Ternary acids, also called as “oxyacids”, are generally made of three kinds of atoms; hydrogen, oxygen and one other element, usually (but not always) a non-metal.

examples of ternary acids: H2SO4, HNO3, HClO3, H2CO3, HCrO4
