what is the charge of a PHOSPITE ?
and how do i write it?

  • CHEM - ,

    phosphate = PO4-3

    phosphite = PO3</-3

    Here is a good site for all of the polyatomic ions, including phosphite ion.

    phosphite should be PO3-3

  • CHEM - ,

    okay then, what is calcium phospite?

  • CHEM - ,

    Ca3(PO3)3 in my book. However, to be fair about it, I looked on the web AND in The Merck Index and found CaHPO3 and it was labeled calcium phosphite. Technically, however, that should be called calcium hydrogen phosphite
