    A metal hybride is any compound in which hydrogen is bonded chemically to a metal

    so that means NaH is a metal hybride.

    But is HNO3 a metal hybride? If yes, why? And if no why? How do you determine if something is from its formula?

    thanks

    Hydride = H-, e.g. NaH = Na+ + H-

    HNO3 is nitric acid, H+ + NO3-, hence it is not a metal hydride. Also, Nitrogen and Oxygen are non-metals.

    it's hydride, btw, not hybride.

    You can tell because the first part will be a metal, and the second part is the hydride.

    eg, FeH2, NaH etc
