Acids & Bases Chemistry. Ms. Siddall.
Standard 5a: Properties PropertiesAcidBase Taste Sour (lemon)Bitter (soap) Touch Like waterLike soap Reaction with metal VigorousNo reaction Conductivity Conducts electricity Litmus Paper Blue redRed blue Neutralization Acid + base salt + water e.x. HCl + NaOH NaCl + H 2 O e.x. HCl + Mg H 2(g) + MgCl 2
Summary 1 1.Write the balanced equation for the reaction of aluminum with HCl to form hydrogen and aluminum chloride. 2.A substance turns red litmus blue and does not react with metal. What is it?
Standard 5b: Brønsted-Lowry Definition Acids donate hydrogen ions (Hydrogen ion = H + = proton) e.x. HBr + H 2 O H 3 O + + Br - Bases accept hydrogen ions e.x. NH 3 + H 2 O NH OH -
Summary 2 Write the balanced equation for the reaction of HF (hydrofluoric acid) with water.
Strong acid ionization weak acid ionization
Standard 5c: Dissociation Acids: Strong acid = strong electrolyte Strong electrolyte = 100% dissociation e.x. HNO 3 + H 2 O H 3 O + + NO 3 - in solution (H 3 O + = hydronium ion) You MUST know these strong acids: HCl, HBr, H I, HNO 3, H 2 SO 4 0% 100%
Summary 3 Which of the following are strong acids? H 2 SO 4, HSO 3, HClO 2, HBr, HNO 3, HNO 2
Standard 5c: continued Weak acids = weak electrolytes Weak electrolyte = Partial dissociation (= equilibrium) e.x. HCN + H 2 O H 3 O + + CN - In solution All other acids are weak acids Examples: acetic acid HC 2 H 3 O 2, carbonic acid H 2 CO 3, HCN, H 3 PO 4 ~97%~3%
Summary 4 At equilibrium does a weak acid solution contain mostly products or mostly reactants? At equilibrium does a strong acid solution contain mostly products or mostly reactants?
Standard 5c: continued Conjugate acids & bases: e.x. HF + H 2 O H 3 O + + F - acid –Donates hydrogen ion Conjugate base –Different from acid by a proton Base –Accepts hydrogen ion Conjugate acid –Different from base by a proton A CB BCA
Summary 5 Label the acid (A), base (B), conjugate acid (ca), and conjugate base (cb) in the following reaction: HNO 3 + H 2 O H 3 O + + NO 3 -
Conjugate acids & base pairs: e.x. HF + H 2 O H 3 O + + F - Acid and Conjugate base pair = HF & F - A strong acid has a weak conjugate base A weak acid has a strong conjugate base Base and conjugate acid pair = H 2 O & H 3 O + A strong base has a weak conjugate acid A weak base has a strong conjugate acid
Summary 6 HF + H 2 O H 3 O + + F - 1.Identify the acid and conjugate base. Label each as weak or strong 2.Identify the base and conjugate acid. Label each as weak or strong
Standard 5d: pH scale Definition: pH = -log[H 3 O + ] pH measures the concentration (amount) of H 3 O + ions in solution
Summary 7 1.Write the equation for HCl reacting with water to make a hydronium ion and a chloride ion 2.Is the concentration of hydronium ions in this solution high or low?
Summary 8 Provide an example of: 1.An acidic compound 2.A basic compound 3.A neutral compound Add a minimum of 3 acids and 3 bases to your pH scale
Self ionization of pure water H 2 O + H 2 O H 3 O + + OH - = Equilibrium system For pure water: [H 3 O + ] = [OH - ] = 1x10 -7 M pH = -log[H 3 O + ] = 7 pH 7 = neutral [H 3 O + ] > [OH - ] = pH < 7= acidic solution [H 3 O + ] 7 = basic solution
Summary 9 Identify the following solutions as acidic, basic, or neutral: 1.pH 3 2.pH 5 3.pH 10 4.pH 7
Acids produce H 3 O + in solution e.x. HCl + H 2 O H 3 O + + Cl - pH measurement: [H 3 O + ] = 0.1M = 1x10 -1 M pH = -log [H 3 O + ] = -log [1x10 -1 ] pH = 1 High [H 3 O + ] = Low pH reading = acidic solution
Summary 10 1.pH measures the concentration of ___________________ ions in solution. 2.A solution with pH = 2: a)has a high / low concentration of these ions b)is acidic / basic
Bases decrease H 3 O + in solution e.x. NaOH + H 3 O + Na + + 2H 2 O pH measurement: [H 3 O + ] = 1x M pH = -log [H 3 O + ] = -log[1x ] pH = 14 Low [H 3 O + ] = High pH reading = basic solution (Alkaline)
Summary 11 1.What is the hydronium ion concentration for a solution with pH = 12? 2.Is the solution acidic or basic?
5f: calculate pH pH = -log[H 3 O + ] Example: [H 3 O + ] = 4.5 x10 -5 M [H 3 O + ] > 1x10 -5 M pH should be between pH = -log[4.5x10 -5 ] = 4.35
Summary 13 Estimate then calculate the pH for a solution with: [H 3 O + ] = 7 x M [H 3 O + ] = 2.2 x M
Summary 14 Complete the following table: [H 3 O + ][OH - ]pHpOH M 1
5e: acid/base definitions Arrhenius : acids are hydrogen containing compounds that ionize to yield H + ions in aqueous solution. e.x. HCl (aq) H + (aq) + Cl - (aq) Bases ionize to yield OH - ions in aqueous solutions. e.x. NaOH (aq) Na + (aq) + OH - (aq) Problems: NH 3 is not a base according to Arrhenius
Summary 15 Explain why NH 3 is not a base according to the Arrhenius definition of a base.
Lewis : An acid accepts a pair of electrons (accepts a negative charge) Acid = proton donor = electron acceptor A base donates a pair of electrons Base = proton acceptor = electron donor oe.x. HCl + H 2 O H 3 O + + Cl -
Summary 16 Explain the difference between the Bronsted-Lowry definition and the Lewis definition of acids and bases
5g: buffers Buffer = a solution whose pH does not change (much) when acid or base are added. A buffer is a solution made from an acid and its conjugate base
Example: human blood must have a pH between 7.35 – 7.45 (or we will die) There are 2 buffer systems in human blood: H 2 PO 4 - /HPO 4 2- & H 2 CO 3 /HCO 3 - B - + H 2 PO 4 - HPO HB B - + H 2 CO 3 HCO HB HB = acid (H + donor) B - = base (H + acceptor)
Summary 17 Write a general equation showing the buffering ability of HSO 4 - and its conjugate base. (use B - as the base that reacts with HSO 4 - )
