Homework Help: PH of a salt

  1. May 9, 2008 #1
    Hi, I have the following problem:

    Calculate the pH of a 0.200M Sodium Cyanide solution.

    I'm confused because this salt has no H or O atoms in it. How could it affect the pH of a solution?
    What formulas would I need to solve this? My final is tomorrow and I'm really worried. Thank you for any help.
