Hydrobromic acid: HBr Bromic Acid: HBr$O_{3}$

Work Step by Step

Hydrobromic acid: The naming system for acids, whenever the word hydro is first in the name of the acid, there will only be one hydrogen and one dissociating ion.

Since bromate ends in (ate) the ending will be changed bromic and the word acid will be added to the end.
