Acids / Bases

Essential Question: Essential Questions (EQ4): Do and/or how do basic particles interact - Stay same?
Essential Questions (EQ3): Do and/or how do basic particles interact - Rearrange?

Each student will be able to:

1. Name and give the chemical formula of acids. In addition, be able to determine if a given chemical name/formula is an acid compared to an ionic or molecular compound (other than an acid).

2. Define Arrhenius' theory of acids and bases in terms of the presence of hydronium and hydroxide ions.

3. Relate hydronium ion and hydroxide concentrations to the pH scale and to acidic, basic, and neutral solutions. Be able to calculate pH problems (or pOH problems).

4. Using your understanding of weak and strong acid/bases, be able to compare and contrast the strengths of various acids and bases (e.g. common acid/bases like vinegar, baking soda, orange juice).

5. Understand what a Neutralization reaction (acid base reaction) is and how to create a balanced complete chemical equation and use it in solving Neutralization problems.

6. Describe an acid-base titration (and be able to perform a strong acid - strong base titration) including its lab components (e.g. buret). Identify when the equivalence point is reached and its significance.

7. Explain what pH indicators are and how they are selected (especially in acid base titration reactions). (Equivalence point of solution = Endpoint of the pH indicator)
