      Carbonite

    • E.

      Hypocarbonate

    Correct Answer
    A. Bicarbonate
    Explanation
    The correct answer is bicarbonate because the formula HCO31- corresponds to the bicarbonate ion. The prefix "bi-" indicates that there is one hydrogen ion (H+) combined with the carbonate ion (CO32-), resulting in the bicarbonate ion (HCO31-). This ion is commonly found in substances like baking soda and plays a role in regulating pH levels in the body.

      Hypochlorite

    • E.

      Chloride

    Correct Answer
    A. Perchlorate
    Explanation
    The correct answer is perchlorate. Perchlorate is a polyatomic ion composed of one chlorine atom and four oxygen atoms. It has a -1 charge, indicated by the "-1" in the ClO41- formula. The prefix "per-" indicates that it has one more oxygen atom than the chlorate ion (ClO31-). The other options, chlorate, chlorite, hypochlorite, and chloride, have different numbers of oxygen atoms or different charges, making them incorrect choices.

    What is another name for bicarbonate?

    Correct Answer
    hydrogen carbonate
    Explanation
    Bicarbonate is another name for hydrogen carbonate. The term "bicarbonate" refers to the chemical compound HCO3-, which consists of one hydrogen atom, one carbon atom, and three oxygen atoms. This compound is commonly found in many substances, including baking soda and antacids. Therefore, hydrogen carbonate is an alternative name for bicarbonate.

    What is another way of writing CH3COO1-?

    Correct Answer
    C2H3O21-, Acetate ion, acetate
    Explanation
    The correct answer is C2H3O21-, acetate. This is because CH3COO1- is the chemical formula for the acetate ion, which is commonly referred to as acetate. The C2H3O2 represents the molecular formula of the acetate ion, while the 1- indicates that the ion has a negative charge of -1. Therefore, C2H3O21- and acetate are alternate ways of representing the same chemical species.
