= -log10 [OH?(aq)]
= -log10 [H?(aq)]

formula pH when given pOH or formula for pOH when given pH
pH formulas

A laboratory procedure in which a substance in a solution of known concentration is reacted with another substance in a solution of unknown concentration in order to determine the unknown concentration.
pH indicator
changes color when equivalence point is hit

sour Taste (corrosive)
properties of acids (aq)
Why can acids conduct electric currents?
strong electrolytes, completely separated into ions in water
binary acid
contains only 2 different elements (H and an electronegative element), many common inorganic acids,
is a compound of H, O, and a nonmetal
ternary acids
contain 3 different elements
common industrial acids
sulfuric- most commonly produced industrial chemical, used in petrol refining, metallurgy, fertilizer manufacture, raw material production, car batteries, is an effect dehydrating agent
properties of bases
Taste bitter (caustic)
Arrhenius bases either
dissociate to release OH? in solution
all aqueous acids are
acid molecules are
polar, so water molecules attract H?, anions are left behind
strength of an acid
increases with increasing polarity (between H and anion) and decreasing bond energy (amount of energy needed to break bond)
aq solution of a weak acid
will have H?, anions, and dissolved acid molecules, reverse reactions occur simultaneously
organic acids
contain the acidic carboxyl group COOH, are weak acids generally
most aqueous bases
ionic compounds of metal cations and OH?,
strength of base
depends on extent of dissociation, also strong electrolytes,
Weak Bases
H2O, ROH, PR3, Halides, RS, N3, NC, RCOO
in NaOH
the BL base is OH? not NaOH, because OH? is what accepts the proton?
Bronsted-Lowry acid-base reaction
protons are transferred from one reactant (acid) to another (base)
monoprotic acid
can donate only one proton per molecule
polyprotic acid
can donate more than one proton per molecule
Diprotic Acid
Any acid that contains two ionizable protons
Triprotic Acid
Acids that contain three ionizable hydrogens.
both BL and Arrhenius
assume an acid contains/produces H?
Boron trifluoride
any compound with 3 valence electrons in the central atom that forms 3 covalent bonds can react as a Lewis acid
Lewis acid-base reaction
formation of a covalent bond between a Lewis acid and Lewis base
Arrhenius, BL, and Lewish base
equilibrium systems
meaning that both forward and reverse reactions occur, involve conjugate pairs, Bronsted-Lowry
the stronger an acid is
the weaker its conjugate base so as not to compete with its acid
the stronger a base is
the weaker its conjugate acid so as not to compete with its base
proton transfer reactions favor
the production of the weaker acid and teh weaker base
for an acid base reaction to form products completely
the reactants must be much stronger as acids/bases than the products!!!
if water reacts with a stronger acid than water, then water acts as a base
if water reacts with a stronger base than water, then it will act as an acid
Hydroxyl group
A functional group consisting of a hydrogen atom joined to an oxygen atom by a polar covalent bond. Molecules possessing this group are soluble in water and are called alcohols.
neutralization example

spectator ions
appear on both sides of the overall ionic equation
a salt
ionic compound composed of a cation from a base and an anion from an acid
Acid Rain
Fossil Fuels contain the element sulphur or compounds of sulphur. This dissolves in rainwater; it thens reacts with water and oxygen to from a very dilute solution of sulphuric acid. This has some negative effects on the environment however:
