Acids and bases: Acid Characteristics: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Base Characteristics: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. The Three definitions and theories of acids and bases: Arrhenius: *Acids are compounds that yield hydrogen ions in aqueous solutions *Bases are compounds that yield hydroxide ions in aqueous solutions Monoprotic acids: Diprotic acids: Triprotic acids:
example: H2SO4 , H(NO3), H3 (PO4) example: H2(SO4)(aq) ---------------> 2H+ + (SO4) -2 example: K(OH) aq) -----------------> K+ + (OH)-
Bronsted - Lowry acids and bases: *Acids are hydrogen ion donors *Bases are hydrogen ion acceptors example: NH3 + H20 NH4+ + OH-
conjugate acid: a particle formed when a base gains a hydrogen ion conjugate base: a particle that remains after an acid has donated a hydrogen ion
Note: water is amphoteric - a split personality - it can accept hydrogen ions or donate them. It can be either an acid or a base in some reactions. HCl + H20 -------------> H30+ + Lewis acids and bases: *Acids can accept a pair of electrons *Bases can donate a pair of electrons example: NH3 The self ionization of water: Water and the Hydronium ion *water is highly polar and in constant motion example: H20 + H20 -------------> H30+ + OHCl-
*The reaction in which water molecules react with one another to produce ions is called self ionization and occurs to a very small extent [H30+] or [H+] = 1.0 X 10-7 moles/liter (M) [OH-] = 1.0 X 10-7 moles/liter (M)
The ion-product constant for water: Kw = [H+] X [OH-] = 1.0 X 10-14 (moles/L)2 *The product of the hydrogen ion concentration and the hydroxide ion concentration is equal to Kw for aqueous solutions *water pulls strong acids apart (dissociation). The [H+] concentration is greater than the [OH-] concentration example: If the [H+] is 1.0 X 10-5 moles/liter, what is the [OH-] concentration? Base or Acid? The pH Scale:
**Know these four important formulas(below). These four formulas will allow you to solve for hydrogen ion concentration, hydroxide ion concentration, pH and pOH answers when given needed information. 1. Kw = [H+] X [OH-] = 1.0 X 10-14 (moles/L)2 2. pH + pOH = 14 3. pH = - log [H+] 4. pOH = -log [OH-]
example: What is the pH of a solution in which the [H+] = 1.0 X10-10 moles/liter? pH = - log (1.0 X 10-10 moles/liter) = - (log 1 + log 10-10) = - (0.0) + (-10) = 10 What is the [OH-] concentration??
example: What is the pH of a solution in which the [H+] = 2.5 X 10-4 moles/liter? pH = - log (2.5 X 10-4 moles/liter) pH = ???? What is the [OH-] concentration?? sample problem: The [OH-] concentration of a solution is 3.0 X 10-8 moles/liter, determine the pH and pOH.
