Problem

You may want to reference (Pages 273 - 278)Section 7.6 while completing this problem.

Consider the following oxides: SO2, Y2O3, MgO, Cl2O, and N2O5. How many are expected to form acidic solutions in water?

Solution

We are asked to identify the oxides that are expected to form acidic solutions in water.


Recall that:

Metal oxides react with water to produce basic solutions.

Nonmetal oxides react with water to produce acidic solutions.
