acidic vs basic solution

Postby Alyssa Bryan 3F » Sun Feb 24, 2019 12:42 pm

In the book, each problem tells us whether the reaction takes place in an acidic or basic solution. What is the importance in knowing what type of solution the reaction occurs in?

There is importance in this because based off of the solution being acidic vs basic, you must add different components. Basic is very similar to acidic, but you would then add OH- ions to balance the half equations, whereas the acidic requires just H+ and electrons
