its a salt. Acids have a hydrogen in front of them.

A fatty acid salt is a kind of carboxylic acid salt. But not all carboxylic acid salts are fatty acid salts.

Salt doesn't contain any acid.

Salt is, by definition not an acid or a base.

Sodium hydrogen phosphate is an acid.

It is not an acid. It is a salt. It is actually the salt we call salt (sodium chloride).

Yes, acid is acid and salt is base, if you make a concentrated solution you get water and salt.

yes salt acts as a buffer which neutralizes the acid.

Yes. An acid-base reaction forms a salt and water. acid+ + base− = salt + water

a salt may be neutral ,acidic or basic but a salt can neither be alkali or a strong acid.

I'm assuming you mean a salt neutralising an acid or base- This can not actually happen, because a salt is already 'Neutralised' An acid can neutralise a base, and a base neutralise an acid, but when Base+Acid reacts, a salt is formed. Adding a salt to a acid or base solution will only make it salty.

An acid salt has the pH in water solution under 7; and is inverse for a basic salt.

Naphthalic acid salt is usually made with aluminum. When mixed into gasoline along with aluminum salt of palmetic acid, it makes napalm.

An acid reacts with a base to produce a salt and water.

No, there won't be reaction between any weak acid (acetic acid, CH3COOH) reacting with a salt of any strong acid (NaCl is chloride salt of HCl, strong acid).

Salt can be neutral, acidic, or basic. Salts are formed through the reaction of an acid and a base. If the reaction involves a strong acid and a strong base, the resulting salt is neutral (like NaCl table salt). A weak acid and a strong base result in a basic salt, and a strong acid and a weak base form an acid salt.

salt and water. Salt depends on acid

It is an acidic salt because it is a salt of weak base and strong acid

No, it is not a salt. For example: ACID = H-(anion) BASE = (cation)-OH A salt is obtained from a reaction between an ACID and a BASE: ACID + BASE -> (anion)(cation) + H-OH (anion)(cation) is a salt, a ionic compound An acid is a covalent compound

Formic acid is an...acid !

HBrO3 is not a salt; it is an acid.

Acid + Base = salt + water Acid + active metal = salt + hydrogen gaas

guys the conclusion of acid base and salt is a salt only..... good luck guys...........
