Equations with Salt

Postby VivianaHF2L » Fri Jan 18, 2019 2:17 pm

Would a salt disassociate completely? Or only partially?
I do not really understand how that effects which molecules to include in the equilibrium equation?

All Salts are ionic compounds. What this means is that in water they will completely dissociate and bond around water. This is not included in the chemical reaction. You only worry about the ions if one of them is either the conjugate base or acid to an added acid or base.

The rule of thumb is that salts completely dissassociate
