Selecting Which Acid/Base to React Test Oxide With

Postby erica thompson 4I » Wed Dec 04, 2019 9:37 pm

What strategies can you use to figure out which acids/bases are good for reacting with the tested oxide? I understand that you should try to use the oxide in a reaction as both an acid and a base, but how do you figure out which substances to react the oxide with in the first place?

One looks at the given reaction to see if the oxide is acting as an acid or base in the reaction.
