salt is inorganic compouhnd
msot time cal A and B reactions neutralization reactions bevause they form watwr and something else,,, water at 25C will have neutral PH, but the solution left after reaction may not be neutral, the PH at teh end is related to the salt-- some salts are neutral
Basic salt if splt into ions, one ion reactes with water, and increases the OH- in a solution
compare the ions sto if they ar strong base or acid
both strong no one wins
both form strong
Br is strong
Both are weak it depends on Ka values
REMMEBR IF IT gives you Ph during a rice problem you can find H+ or OH ions wich may be the X and dont have to use quadratic formula
The conjugate base of a weak acid acts as a weak base.
The weaker a weak acid, the stronger its conjugate base.
Low Ka for bases = stronger base
That means, for example, that since the acid dissociation constant
is lower than the
Ka, of HF,CH3CO2−
is a stronger base than
F−. That is, a solution containing
will have a higher pH than a solution containing the same molarity of
The conjugate acid of a weak base acts as a weak acid.
