What acid and what strong base would react in aqueous solution to produce the following salts in the formula equation? Write the balanced formula equation for each reaction.
a) potassium perchlorate
b) cesium nitrate
c) calcium iodide
I don't need just the answers, I'm confused on how we're supposed to make our own equations
Thanks in advance!
Salts are combinations of a base and an acid. The cation comes from the base and the anion from the acid. The other product is water. For example, a is KClO4 and it comes from KOH and HClO4.
KOH + HClO4 ==> H2O + KClO4.
I will leave the others for you but you can see it is straight forward.
