17.6 pH Effects on Solubility
Acidic, Basic, and Neutral Salts
Acidic salts are more soluble in basic solutions (pH>7), less soluble in acidic solutions (pH<7).
Basic salts are more soluble in acidic solutions (pH<7), less soluble in basic solutions (pH>7).
Neutral salts have a solubility that is largely unaffected by a change in pH.
