. Define the following and give two examples in each case


Define the following and give two examples in each case: (a) a normal salt, (b) an acid salt, (c) a mixed salt.

 

Best Answer

(a) A normal salt: Normal salts are the salts formed by the complete replacement of the ionizable hydrogen atoms of an acid by a metallic or an ammonium ion.

(b) An acidic salt: Acid salts are formed by the partial replacement of the ionizable hydrogen atoms of a polybasic acid by a metal or an ammonium ion.

(c) A mixed salt: Mixed salts are those salts that contain more than one basic or acid radical.

Examples:

(a) A Normal salt: Na2SO4, NaCl

(b) An acid salt: NaHSO4, Na2HPO4

(c) A mixed salt: NaKCO3, CaOCl2
