In each of the following salts, either the cation or the anion is a weak acid or a weak base in water. Write the chemical equation
for the proton transfer reaction of this cation or anion with water:

(a) NaC 6 H 5 O; (b) KClO; (c) C 5 H 5 NHCl; (d) NH 4 Br.

How do you determine whether the cation or anion is a weak acid or weak base in water?

I think the question was just telling you that they are weak. I don't think it was asking you to determine, but there is a table for strong acids and bases, so if its not included there, then its probably weak.

the question is mostly focused on the fact that this reaction is in equilibrium and has a K constant
