When creating and acid-base equation

Postby Hannah Morales 1D » Sun Dec 09, 2018 3:03 am

I am confused on when forming an equation, how do I know as to what is formed from the reactants? Is there a general guideline as to how something will be produced in bronsted acids/bases?
I understand that bronsted base will accept a proton while bronsted acid will donate a proton and what conjugate acids and bases are, but how does for example an atom that was attached to the molecule dissociate from it? Does that happen all the time or only certain instances?

Thanks!

In general, you should make a salt and water. If you have a strong acid or base, they will dissociate in water. If you have a weak acid and a weak base mixed together, they will form a salt in water.
