Write a balanced equation showing how you could prepare each of the following salts from an acid-base reaction: KNO3, NaBr, CaS.
Salts are combinations of acids and bases. The cation comes from a base and the anion from an acid. Therefore, to make KNO3 we react KOH and HNO3. See how that is done? We write K and add OH to make KOH. We take NO3 and add H to make HNO3.
NaBr is NaOH + HBr.
I will leave CaS for you to do.
