I am slightly confused on how to know if a salt will make a solution more acidic or basic. I know that highly charged cations such as Fe3+ makes the solution more acidic but why does this happen?

The salt may be an acid that will react with water and produce more hydronium atoms to make a more acidic solution

If a salt has a really weak conjugate base, then it will form a stronger acid, and the opposite is also true.
Fe3+ can take out HO- ions from the water and thus increase the [H+].

What is the purpose of neutralization?
