Salt Solutions in Water Salt solutions completely ionize in H 2 O. If their ions can react with H 2 O to form H + of OH - , the pH of the solution will change.

Anions that are the conjugate bases of weak acids will react with H 2 O to form OH - ions. Anions that are conjugate bases of strong acids are very weak bases and aren’t strong enough to react with H 2 O. No pH change.

Anions that have ionizable protons (HSO 4 - ) are amphoteric. Can act as an acid or a base and must be determined based on the K a and K b for the ion.

K w = K a x K b b 10 - 5 - -14 a2 w K 10 x 9 . 5 10 x 1.7 10 x 1 K K = = Now compare for our situation K a = 4.0x10 -7 K b = 5.9x10 -10 K a is 700 times larger than K b so the acid reaction will predominate and solution will be acidic.

All cations (except alkali and heavy alkaline earth metal ions) act as weak acids. Rules Salts derived from strong acid and strong base from neutral solutions in H 2 O. ex. NaCl Na + from NaOH Cl - from HCl Salt derived from strong base/weak acid. Anion will be relatively strong conjugate base. pH > 7. ex. Ba(C 2 H 3 O 2 ) 2

Salt derived from weak base/strong acid. Strong conjugate acid. pH < 7. ex. Al(NO 3 ) 3 Al 3+ + 3H 2 O Al(OH 3 ) + 3H + Salt derived from weak base/weak acid. ex. NH 3 C 2 H 3 O 2 . Both conjugate acid and base will be fairly strong in solution. pH depends on which ion hydrolyzes H 2 O better. Must compare K a and K b .

The dissociation of a weak electrolyte is decreased by adding a strong electrolyte that has an ion in common with the weak electrolyte. Ex. ? pH of solution of 0.30 mol acetic acid (HC 2 H 3 O 2 ) and 0.30 mol NaC 2 H 3 O 2 (sodium acetate) in 1.0L?
