How Strong Are Acid Or Base Solutions?
Chapter 2. Acids Bases and Salt 2.3. How Strong Are Acid Or Base Solutions? We know how acid-base indicators can be used to distinguish between an acid and a base. We have also learnt in the previous section about dilution and decrease in concentration of H+ or OH– ions in solutions. Can we quantitatively find […]
What Do All Acids And All Bases Have In Common?
Chapter 2. Acids Bases and Salt 2.2. What Do All Acids And All Bases Have In Common? In Section 2.1 we have seen that all acids have similar chemical properties. What leads to this similarity in properties? We saw in Activity 2.3 that all acids generate hydrogen gas on reacting with metals, so hydrogen seems […]
