How do you know when something is a salt? To add, how does a salt affect the ICE Tables because in lecture the product sides were NOT at 0??

A salt has a anion and cation. For example, NaF is a salt since Na+ is a cation and F- is an anion.

The pH of a solution with salt depends on the relative acidity and basicity of the salt's ions.

Usually a salt will include the conjugate acid/base of the acid/base that is ionizing. For example the weak acid, NH3, and its salt, NH4Cl, will form a buffer solution.

A salt is composed of a cation and an anion. By examining the dissociated cation or anion you can tell how the pH will change. If the cation is able to give off an H+, it will lower the pH, if the anion is able to accept an H+, it will raise the pH.
