Problem

Which of the following salts, when dissolved in water, produces a solution that is neutral.

i. KI

ii. KBr

iii. KCl

iv. KF

Solution

Ionic salts are made up of positively charged ion (cation) and a negatively charged ion (anion). To determine if the ionic salt would be acidic, basic, or neutral, we need to identify the acidity or basicity of the cation and anion.

For cations:

transition metal

▪ charge of +2 or higheracidic
▪ less than +2 → neutral solution

main group metal
