Naming Acids
Acids are formed when a compund of Hydrogen Ions and a negitively charged ion are dissolved in water(aqueous). Ions separate when they are dissolved in water.

For Example:
H + Cl  ->  HCl(g)
HCl(g) + H2O(l) ->  H3O(aq) + Cl(aq)

Naming Acid Guidlines
1. Use "hydro" as the beginning
2. Last syllable of the non-metal is dropped and replaced with "-ic"
3. Add "acid" at the end
*                ide ->  hydro                ic  acid*
For Example:
                      HF        becomes      hydro flouric acid

Naming Complex Acids
1. -ate is replaced with -ic
    -ite is replaced with -ous
2. "acid" at the end of the name
For Example:
                      HCH3COO    becomes Acetic Acid
