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.
