This question has me stumped.
Predict whether aqueous solutions of the following substances are acidic, basic, or neutral:
I found the portions of my text that deal with this problem, but it doesn't seem to go into enough detail. I know for these problems, you can sometimes ignore parts of the solution for some reason. I understand that the first step is to break each solution down into cations and anions, then they need to be analyzed individually.
So, breaking K3PO4 apart, I should get K (with a +3 superscript), which means PO4 should have a -3 superscript (I think). Now at this point I am supposed to know if these cations and anions are part of strong or weak acids or bases to determine the answer? Is there a chart for this somewhere?
