pH of salt solutions

Postby Christineg1G » Mon Jan 20, 2020 2:46 pm

If we are given a problem and asked to calculate the pH, how would we know if we should follow the steps for calculating the pH of salt solutions (like finding the Ka value if we are given the Kb value) or just continue with the calculations and not solve for either Ka or Kb and just use the value we are given?

What are spectator ions and how do they affect pH?

Chemical equilibrium problems of weak acids/bases always use an ICE table because these compounds don't fully dissociate and thus we would use the Ka/Kb value respectively to finish solving the problem.
