12.17 Part c and Part d

Postby Jasmine Wu 1L » Sun Dec 03, 2017 10:41 pm

In the solutions manual, it says that the compound As2O3 (from part c) and that Bi2O3 are amphoteric. How do you tell that those compounds are amphoteric?

Thank you!

Because they both have the characteristics of acids and bases. You can easily find these compounds around the diagonal of the periodic table.
