Salt

How can you determine if the reaction is with a salt? How is determining the equillibrium constant different from an acid/base?

Knowing strong/weak acids and bases help to determine if the reaction is with salt. It isn't too different than an acid/base reaction you just have to write out the reations that affect ph and do the necessary calculations.

Being aware of the strengths of acids and bases can help determine salts.

I thought that salt was usually a product?

Salt is a product in a neutralization reaction. However, the same salt formed from a neutralization reaction, or another other acidic/basic salt for that matter, can be dissolved in water and may affect pH.
