Explain why salts of weak bases produce acidic solutions and salts of weak acids produce basic solutions. Also, how do we determine whether the salt produced during a titration makes the solution acidic or basic?
Another way to determine how a salt will affect a solution is to write out the net ionic equation for the salt produced and separating the the cation and anion. If it produces a strong base, OH- will be produced (basic), and if the product is a strong acid, H+ will be produced (acidic).
