Homework Help: chemistry

Posted by polkadot on Thursday, April 7, 2011 at 10:13pm.

Hello! Please correct me if I'm wrong.

For the following compound, predict whether the solution is acidic, basic, or neutral and why: NH4Cl.
a) acidic, NH4Cl is the salt of a weak base
b) neutral because there is no hydrolysis
c) acidic, NH4Cl is a strong acid
d) basic, NH4Cl is the salt of a weak acid
e) basic, NH4Cl is a weak base
-- I picked D. I think I may have chosen wrong. I think it dissociates into NH4^+ and Cl^- making an acidic solution... but I'm not so sure

Thank you for helping to correct me :)
