Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by Stuck on Friday, May 7, 2010 at 12:04am.

I am predicting acid-base equilibria using the Brondsted-Lowry predictions. I am asked to do "solid aluminum sulfate added to water".

So I know there is an Al^2+ ion and a SO4^-2 ion, but does water dissociate into H30^+ and OH^-? If so, then H30^+ and OH^- would be the strongest acid and base...and I would end up with a neutral reaction (shouldn't it be acidic?). If not, then I would only have a strong base (SO4^-2), and no acid to work with. Help!
