Predict if the solutions of the following salts are neutral, acidic or basic: NaCl, KBr, NaCN, NH4NO3, NaNO2 and KF.

Asked by Pragya Singh | 1 year ago |  84

##### Solution :-

• KBr

KBr + H2$$\leftrightarrow$$ KOH (Strong base)+ HBr (Strong acid)Thus, it is a neutral solution.

• NH4NO3

NH4NO3 + H2O$$\leftrightarrow$$ NH4OH(Weak base) + HNO2 (Strong acid)Thus, it is an acidic solution.

• KF

KF + H2$$\leftrightarrow$$ KOH (Strong base) + HF (weak acid)Thus, it is a basic solution.

• NaNO2

NaNO2 + H2$$\leftrightarrow$$ NH4OH(Strong base) + HNO2(Weak acid)Thus, it is a basic solution.

• NaCN

NaCN + H2$$\leftrightarrow$$ HCN (Weak acid) + NaOH (Strong base)Thus, it is a basic solution.

• NaCl

NaCl + H2$$\leftrightarrow$$ NaOH (Strong base) + HCL (Strong acid)Thus, it is a neutral solution.
