Textbook Problem

Are solutions of the following salts acidic, basic, or neutral? For those that are not neutral, write balanced chemical equations for the reactions causing the solution to be acidic or basic. The relevant Ka and Kb values are found in Tables 13-2 and 13-3.

a. NaNO3

b. NaNO2

c. C5H5NHClO4

d. NH4NO2

e. KOCl

f. NH4OCl

(a)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The given salt solutions are to be classified as basic, acidic or neutral. A balanced chemical equation is to be stated for the reactions that are not neutral, that causes the solutions to be acidic or basic.

Concept introduction: The acidic or basic character of a salt is estimated on basis of the type of acid and base that are involved in the formation of the salt. A salt formed from a strong acid and a strong base is relatively neutral.

Explanation

Explanation

To determine: The given salt solution is to be classified as a basic, acidic or neutral solution; a balanced chemical equation for the reaction if it is not neutral, that cause the solution to be acidic or basic.

The given salt solution is neutral.

NaNO3
