name each of the following ionic compounds by stock system... couldn't find these in the list.
You couldn't find them, probably because there is no reason to get confused with the answers, at least for some of them. I would name them
sodium(I) chloride **see note
potassium(I) fluoride ** see note
calcium(II) sulfide **see note
cobalt(II) nitrate (could confuse)
iron(III) phosphate (could confuse)
mercury(II) sulfate (could confuse)
mercury(II) phosphate (could confuse)
**The I is not necessary because Na, K, and Ca are known only in the +1 or +2(for Ca) states. Frankly, I don't know if placing a I or II there is incorrect or not.
