Gen Chem 1200


This is information for chapter 14.
By the end of the lesson, students should be able to:
  • Identify acids, bases, and conjugate acid-base pairs according to the Brønsted-Lowry definition
  • Write equations for acid and base ionization reactions
  • Use the ion-product constant for water to calculate hydronium and hydroxide ion concentrations
  • Describe the acid-base behavior of amphiprotic substances
  • Explain the characterization of aqueous solutions as acidic, basic, or neutral
  • Express hydronium and hydroxide ion concentrations on the pH and pOH scales
  • Perform calculations relating pH and pOH
  • Predict whether a salt solution will be acidic, basic, or neutral
  • Calculate the concentrations of the various species in a salt solution
  • Describe the process that causes solutions of certain metal ions to be acidic
  • Describe the composition and function of acid–base buffers
  • Calculate the pH of a buffer before and after the addition of added acid or base
  • Interpret titration curves for strong and weak acid-base systems
  • Compute sample pH at important stages of a titration
  • Explain the function of acid-base indicators
