In this lesson our instructor talks about acid-base chemistry. First he discusses quantifying acid-base strength, writing out acid-base equilibria and salts solutions. Then he talks about diprotic acids, polyprotic acids, Lewis acids, Lewis bases, molecular structure, and molecular acidity. He ends the lesson with a summary and two helpful sample problems.
Bronsted-Lowry acid-base chemistry involves a loss/gain of a proton to/from water.
Conjugate pairs only differ by one proton and are inversely related in terms of acidity/basicity.
Acidity and basicity can be quantified primarily via pH, Ka ,pKa and percent ionization.
The structure of a molecule can have a significant impact on how acidic it can be.
ICE tables are easily applied to an acid-base equilibrium situation.
Lecture Slides are screen-captured images of important points in the lecture. Students can download and print out these lecture slide images to do practice problems as well as take notes while watching the lecture.
Chang’s best-selling textbook continues to take a traditional approach and is often considered a student and teacher favorite. The book features a straightforward, clear writing style and proven problem-solving strategies.
