Neutralization Reactions

Postby Brittney Hun 2C » Wed Dec 04, 2019 8:49 pm

For problems such as J.7, in order to select an acid or base it seems we would just add an H+ to the conjugate base and an OH- to the conjugate acid but would the same apply to the zinc nitrite? Would the zinc be the conjugate base, but Zn(OH)2 doesn't seem like a base that we're familiar with.

Yes, zinc would be the conjugate base. Although we are not familiar with the compound, I think Lavelle just wants us to understand the formation of salts. We don't need to memorize all of the bases and acids because that would be absurd. Just recognize which would be the conjugate acid or base and answer accordingly.
