Question

# We can classify chemical substances as acids,base so or salts. Can be classify elements and compounds as acids bases or salts?

Solution

## An Acid is a substance that gives H+ ions when dissolved in water. A Base is a substance that gives OH- ions when dissolved in water. A Salt results when an acid reacts with a base And none of the elements in the periodic table show any of the above characteristics. So elements cannot be classified as Acid&Base or Salt.
