How do you name iodic acid?

An oxyacid with two less oxygen atoms than the (root)ic acid is named by writing hypo-, then the root of the name for the element other than hydrogen and oxygen, then -ous, and then acid. Therefore, HClO, is hypochlorous acid.

In this regard, what are the rules for naming acids?

Naming Acids

  • When the anion ends in –ide, the acid name begins with the prefix hydro-.
  • When the anion ends in –ate, the name of the acid is the root of the anion followed by the suffix –ic.
  • When the anion ends in –ite, the name of the acid is the root of the anion followed by the suffix –ous.

Similarly, how do you name Oxoacids? To name an oxoacid, one should change the - ate or - ite suffixes of the oxoanions to - ic or - ous respectively and add the word acid at the end. For example, HNO3 is H+ bonded to NO3- (nitrate), thus it is called nitric acid. HNO2 is H+ bonded to NO2- (nitrite), thus it is called nitrous acid.

Also question is, what is the correct formula of iodic acid?

HIO3

Is HCl a cation or anion?

HCl, which contains the anion chloride, is called hydrochloric acid. HCN, which contains the anion cyanide, is called hydrocyanic acid. Rules for Naming Oxyacids (anion contains the element oxygen): Since all these acids have the same cation, H+, we don't need to name the cation.
