aqueous solutions of salts

Postby juliefilice 4A » Wed Dec 05, 2018 10:50 pm

How do we decide whether aqueous solutions of salts are acidic, neutral, or basic? Could someone please explain how Ba(NO2)2 would be basic?

The way I determine whether a solution is acidic, basic, or neutral by looking at the formula and I follow theses rules:
Acids= Hydrogen ion in front of solution. Ex. HNO3, Hc2H3O2, H2SO4
Base= OH attached to it so H is attached to the O. Ex. NaOH, KNO3,
If it doesn’t have an H or attached to it then its a Salt (neutral)

NO3 is the conjugate base for strong acid that will get a proton from water to form OH- in the solution.
