QUESTION

What is the covalent compound formula for Nitric Acid?

It would be NO_2OH

Imagine the N with 5 valencies, in the centre. Four of those are taken by two double-bonded O, and the fifth is taken by an OH

In a watery environment, the H is quickly 'donated' to a water molecule in the form of an H^+ to form the hydronium or acid ion H_3O^+, leving the NO_3^- ion.
