Weak acid and weak base

Postby Tyler Angtuaco 1G » Fri Dec 06, 2019 1:55 pm

What results from the addition of a weak acid and weak base? Could a salt even be formed?

Since the weak acid and base both do not dissociate very much, the solution will contain mostly the weak acid, weak base, and very small amounts of the salt and its ions. A salt is formed, but the pH is determined by the weak acid and weak base, not the salt.
