Unformatted text preview: dinitrogen tetroxide N 2 O 5 nitrogen pentoxide dinitrogen pentoxide Naming Some Inorganic Compounds Ternary Acids and Their Salts are made of three elements. The elements are H, O, & a nonmetal. Two of the compounds are chosen as the basis for the nomenclature system. Higher oxidation state for nonmetal is named (stem)ic acid. Lower oxidation state for nonmetal is named (stem)ous acid Salts are named based on the acids....
