Calculating with Salts

Postby Noh_Jasmine_1J » Tue Jan 22, 2019 8:45 am

if you're calculating with salts, how do you know what part of the equation you don't need to add in finding out values for K or Q?

In the book, there is a section that details which kinds of cations and anions actually affect the pH of solutions. It's probably a good idea to be familiar with those because they are included in your Ka/Kb calculations while other ions, like group 1 & 2 cations, are not included. Hope that helps!
