Unformatted text preview: a , pK a in terms of acid strength of the acid, and therefore, the base strength of its conjugate base. 7. Use K a , pK a values to determine the outcome/spontaneity of a potential acid-base reaction. 8. Determine if a given solvent is protic or aprotic. 9. Explain why water-insoluble acids dissolve in aqueous sodium hydroxide and why water-insoluble bases dissolve in aqueous HCl. 10. Compare (and explain!!) the acidity ( i.e. , the tendency to lose H as H + ) of various H-A bonds using differences in atomic size, electronegativity, hybridization (% s character), inductive effects and resonance effects. 11. Explain why it is not possible to use a base stronger than hydroxide ion in aqueous solution. 12. Prepare deuterium ( 2 H) and tritium ( 3 H) labeled compounds using acid-base reactions. 13. Apply, interpret relationships between standard free energy change and a) a) equilibrium constant and b) b) enthalpy and entropy...
