Determine whether each of the following salts will form a solution that is acidic, basic, or pH-neutral?
Is this right?
All look ok to me except for NH4ClO. I think that will be basic. The Kb for NH3 is about 10^-5 and Ka for HOCl is about 10^-8
I follow the rule of (H^+) = sqrt(KwKa/Kb) for weak acid/weak base salts.
