Is NaCH3COO a weak base?
Similarly, it is asked, is sodium acetate a weak base?
Sodium acetate is a salt of a strong base and a weak acid. The solution will be a weak base. It is soluble in water (70g/100ml). Strong electrolytes are either strong acids or soluble salts.
Likewise, what makes a weak base? A weak base is a chemical base that does not ionize fully in an aqueous solution. As Brønsted-Lowry bases are proton acceptors, a weak base may also be defined as a chemical base with incomplete protonation.
Similarly one may ask, is NH4Cl a weak base?
As mentioned in the other answer, NH4Cl is an “acidic” salt, formed by the neutralization of a strong acid (HCl) with a weak base (NH3). Therefore, when the salt is completely dissociated in an aqueous solution, it forms NH4+ and Cl- ions.
Is calcium carbonate a weak base?
It is a salt of the calcium, ion a strong base and carbonic acid, a very weak acid. Answer: calcium carbonate is a salt, it is neither acid nor base.
