Making Soluble Salts

There are different ways of making soluble salts, these are:

React an acid + metal

This makes a salt + hydrogen

Acid + Metal - Salt + Hydrogen

Some very reactive metals could cause an explosion

Acid + Insoluble base

This makes salt + water

Acid + Insoluble base - salt + water

Acid + alkali

This makes salt + water

Acid + alkali - salt + water

Example - Acid + Insoluble base

 Copper oxide + sulfuric acid - copper sulfate + water

Keep adding copper oxide to the acid until no more will react…
