- Acids and bases display distinct characteristics that influence chemical reactions.
- How does the pH of a substance relate to its chemical properties and behavior in chemical reactions?
Acids/Bases and their reactions
- explain and identify the essential qualities of acids and bases
- recognize characteristics of Arrhenius and Bronsted-Lowry definitions and differentiate between them based on these characteristics
- predict the products of acid-base reactions that form water.
- state the meaning of and explain pH
- use the hydrogen ion concentration to calculate pH of a solution.
- use the ionization constant of water and the hydroxide ion concentration of a solution to determine the hydrogen ion concentration of the solution.
- use the ionization constant of water and the hydrogen ion concentration of a solution to determine the hydroxide ion concentration of the solution.
- use pH to calculate the hydrogen ion concentration of a solution.
- recognize that degree of dissociation of a compound is independent of its concentration in solution.
- classify acids as strong or weak based on degree of dissociation
- classify bases as strong or weak based on degree of dissociation
- perform titrations to predict the unknown concentration of a solution
- choose an appropriate indicator for a titration
- Based on a titration curve predict the type of acid used (SA/SB, WA/SB, SA/WB, or WA/WB)
- Identify the equivalance point and the end point on a titration curve
