Salts in Solutions

Postby Mya Majewski 1L » Mon Nov 30, 2015 8:59 pm

How can you decipher what salts are involved in a certain reaction? Like how can you determine the outcomes or products within a buffer?

If it's a cation and an anion, then you can assume its a salt. Overtime, common salts become familiar. Use the Henderson-Hasselbach equation (pH = pKa + log (A-)/(HA)) to determine the pH of buffer solutions.

Return to “*Making Buffers & Calculating Buffer pH (Henderson-Hasselbalch Equation)”
