What happens when there is reaction between a)weak acid and strong base b)weak acid and weak base c)strong acid and weak base D)strong acid and strong base
Strong acids and strong bases always react in the same format since the dissociate nearly 100% in water.
- Solutions of hydrochloric acid and sodium hydroxide are mixed the reaction occurs as follows:
- Solutions of potassium hydroxide and acetic acid are mixed.
Ammonia (NH3) is a weak base that has its own type of reaction. When it reacts with a strong acid, the H+ from the acid is transferred to the ammonia to form the NH4+ ion. The rest of the strong acid acts only as a spectator ion and can be cancelled out.
- A solution of ammonia is mixed with a solution of nitric acid.
