This salt is derived from a strong acid and a strong base.

Work Step by Step

Salts created by the neutralization between a strong acid and a strong base are pH neutral. That occurs because the conjugate pairs of strong acids and bases are very weak, so we do not even consider their reaction in aqueous solutions. Since the salt produced by those are made of these conjugate pairs, the salt will not be capable of changing the pH of the neutral water solution, leaving it at 7.0
