There are systematic ways to name inorganic acids, however, for many acids no-one uses these systematic names because the "acid name" for these particular acids has been in use for a very long time. So, IUPAC recognises the "acid name" for a number of acids.
AUS-e-TUTE has just added a new tutorial, game, test, quiz and worksheet wizard, as well as a card game, to help you give the name and molecular formula of these acids. AUS-e-TUTE members should log-in to use these new resources.
If you are not an AUS-e-TUTE member, there is a "free-to-view" tutorial currently available at
