Rules for acidic & basic salts

Postby charlotte_jacobs_4I » Tue Dec 04, 2018 7:34 pm

Are there any specific rules that apply only to acidic and basic salts? Along with this are there specific calculations for acidic and basic salts?

Salts that are acids lower the pH of the solution, while salts that are bases raise the pH of the solution. For the most part, for salts that are acids the cation is the ion that reacts with water, while for salts that are bases it is the anion that reacts with water.
