Hydrolysis of Salts: pH

When soluble ioinc salts are dissoved in water the pH changes due an increase or decrease of hydronium ions, plus oher ions. Hydronium ions generated or consumed by the conjuate acid-base pairs, cause the pH to change and cuase a corresponding acid-base indicator color change.
