    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Predict whether an aqueous solution of the following salts will be acidic, basic or neutral. Briefly
    explain your results.
    a. NH4Cl
    b. NaCl
    c. MgCO3
    d. NaH2PO4
    e. KNO3

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    NH4Cl + H2O --> NH4OH + HCl (acidic)
    NaCl + H2O --> NaOH + HCl (neutral)
    MgCO3 + H2O --> MgOH + HCO3 (basic)
    NaH2PO4 + H2O --> NaOH + H3PO4 (basic)
    KNO3 + H2O --> KOH + HNO3 (neutral)
    Is this correct???

    Predictions are OK, but reaction equations are horrible.
