We are being asked to determine which salt will be more soluble in an acidic solution than in pure water.
Recall that basic salts are more soluble in acidic solution than in pure water and acidic salts are more soluble in basic solution than in pure water
Let's determine the acidity/basicity of the cation/anion in each salt and the overall acidity/basicity of the salt.
Which salts will be more soluble in an acidic solution than in pure water?
