Properties of Acids 1) Taste sour. 2) React with certain metals to produce H 2 (g). 3) Cause certain organic dyes to change color. 4) React with limestone to liberate CO 2 (g). 5) React with bases to form salts and water. (Neutralization)
Properties of Bases 1)Taste bitter. 2)Feel slippery or soapy. 3)Cause certain organic dyes to change color. 4)React with acids to form salts and water. (Neutralization)
Some Solubility Rules All Group I and NH 4 + salts are soluble. All nitrates and acetates are soluble. Most chlorides, bromides, and iodides are soluble. (except Ag +, Pb +2, Hg 2 +2 ) Most sulfates are soluble. (except Pb +2, Hg 2 +2, Sr +2, Ba +2, Ca +2 ) Most sulfides, sulfites, hydroxides, carbonates, and phosphates are insoluble.

General Rubric for Demonstration Assessments ScoreStudent Achievement 0Makes no accurate observations. 1-4Makes accurate observations without including inferences. 5-7Makes some correct inferences. 8-10Fully explains observations using correct vocabulary.
Rubric for Conductivity Titration Demonstration Assessment (Observations: 0 - 4 points) A few drops of sulfuric acid solution were added to the pink barium hydroxide solution. The solution became cloudy. As more acid was added, the cloudiness increased and the light bulb grew dimmer. Upon adding more acid, the bulb grew gradually dimmer until it went completely dark. A few more drops of acid were added and the pink color disappeared leaving a white suspension. As more acid was added, the light bulb began to glow until it was bright.
Rubric for Conductivity Titration Demonstration Assessment (Partial Explanation: 5 - 7 points) The acid neutralized the base and formed a precipitate. This reduced the number of ions in solution, which caused the bulb to dim. When all the base was neutralized, the indicator changed from pink to colorless leaving a white mixture.
Rubric for Conductivity Titration Demonstration Assessment (Further Explanation: 8-10 points) The products of the reaction were the precipitate, barium sulfate, and the weak electrolyte, water. Ba(OH) 2 (aq) + H 2 SO 4 (aq) ===> BaSO 4 (s) + 2 H 2 O(l) After the equivalence point, further addition of the strong acid, H 2 SO 4, increased the conductivity of the solution. This caused the bulb to gradually become bright again.
