metal oxides → create bases when hydrated by water
nonmetal oxide → create acids when hydrated by water
more metallic → more basic in character
Arrange the following in order of decreasing basicity. MgO, Cs2O, Cl2O7, SnO2, P4O10
Cl2O7 > P4O10 > SnO2 > Cs2O > MgO
Cs2O > SnO2 > MgO > P4O10 > Cl2O7
MgO > Cs2O > SnO2 > P4O10 > Cl2O7
Cs2O > MgO > SnO2 > P4O10 > Cl2O7
MgO > Cs2O > P4O10 > SnO2 > Cl2O7
