The normal salt sodium sulfate is formed. Acidic Salts and Basic Salts Similarly, basic salts are formed by the reaction of polyhydroxy bases with less than the stoichiometric amount of acid. If barium hydroxide and hydrochloric acid are reacted in a 1:1 ratio. You do it! Ba(OH) 2(aq) + HCl (aq) ® Ba(OH)Cl (aq) + H 2 O ( l ) The basic salt is formed. If the reaction is in a 1:2 ratio. Ba(OH) 2(aq) + 2HCl (aq) ® BaCl 2(aq) + 2H 2 O ( l ) The normal salt is formed. Acidic Salts and Basic Salts Both acidic and basic salts can neutralize acids and bases. However the resulting solutions are either acidic or basic because they form conjugate acids or bases.

Unformatted text preview: Another example of Brnsted-Lowry theory. This is an important concept in understanding buffers. An acidic salt neutralization example is: NaHSO 4(aq) + NaOH (aq) Na 2 SO 4 (aq) + H 2 O ( l ) A basic salt neutralization example is: Ba(OH)Cl (aq) + HCl (aq) BaCl 2(aq) + H 2 O ( l ) The Lewis Theory Developed in 1923 by G.N. Lewis. This is the most general of the present day acid-base theories. Emphasis on what the electrons are doing as opposed to what the protons are doing. Acids are defined as electron pair acceptors ....
