Identifying Acidic & Basic Salts

Postby 305117729 » Fri Dec 07, 2018 10:16 pm

How could I know a salt is acidic or basic when it is formed by a weak acid and a weak base?

Salts that contain the conjugate base of a weak acid will raise the pH by removing protons from water and generating OH-. Similarly Salt containing an acid will lower solution pH by adding protons to water and increasing H3O+
