Question

How we can find that a salt formed by neutralisation reaction is an acidic salt or basic salt


Solution

ACIDIC SALT
STRONG ACID - WEAK ACID - TYPES OF SALT - ACIDIC SALT - BASIC SALT - NEUTRAL SALT - TITRATION
Salt formed by the reaction between strong acid and weak base is called "Acidic salt"
. Example: NH4Cl, CuSO4
weak base + strong acid = acidic salt + water
NH4OH + HCl = NH4Cl + H2O
BASIC SALT
 
Salt formed by the reaction between strong base and weak acid is called " basic salt".
. Example: CH3COONa, Na2S
strong base + weak acid = basic salt + water
2NaOH + H2CO3 = Na2CO3 + 2H2O
NEUTRAL SALT
 
Salt formed by the reaction between strong acid and strong base is called "neutral salt".
Example: NaCl, KNO3
strong base +strong acid = neutral salt + water
NaOH + HCl = NaCl + H2O

 

When weak acids and bases react, the relative strength of the conjugated acid-base pair in the salt determines the pH of its solutions. The salt, or its solution, so formed can be acidic, neutral or basic.
