Consider the ionization constants hypochlorous acid (HOCl) : Ka = 3.5 × 10−8; ammonia (NH3) : Kb = 1.8×10−5. A solution of ammonium hypochlorite (NH4OCl) is
1. acidic, because the cation hydrolyzes to a greater extent than the anion.
2. basic, because the anion hydrolyzes to a greater extent than the cation.
3. basic, because the cation hydrolyzes to a greater extent than the anion.
4. neutral, because the cation and the anion hydrolyze to the same extent.
5. acidic, because the cation and the anion hydrolyze to the same extent.
6. acidic, because the anion hydrolyzes to a greater extent than the cation.
7. basic, because the cation and the anion hydrolyze to the same extent.
8. neutral, because the cation hydrolyzes to a greater extent than the anion.
9. neutral, because the anion hydrolyzes to a greater extent than the cation.
10. neutral, because NH4OCl is a weak base/weak acid salt.
