Problem 18

The salt BX, when dissolved in water, produces an acidic solution. Which of the following could be true? (There may be more than one correct answer.) a. The acid HX is a weak acid. b. The acid HX is a strong acid. c. The cation B is a weak acid. Explain.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

February 15­19 Chapter 3 Notes (Continued): Atoms and Ionic Bonds: *Removing Valence electrons to form a cation requires the INPUT of energy* Ionization Energy: - Lowest ionization energy for group 1A cations because they have low effective nuclear charge and large radii - Ionization Energy increases up and to the right of the periodic table Ionization Radii: - Beryllium: [He]2S 2 2 1 - Boron: [He]2S 2P - Magnesium: [Ne]3S 2 2 1 - Aluminum: [Ne]3S 3P - Easier to remove electrons from p subshell than a full s subshell 1 3 - Nitrogen: [He]2S 2P - Oxygen: [He]2S 2P 1 4 - Easier to remove a pa
