ARRHENIUS THEORY-H + AND OHˉ An acid is any substance that ionizes (partially or completely) in water to give hydrogen ions Means associate with solvent to give hydronium ions HA + H 2 O ↔ H 3 O + + Aˉ
Image of page 2
A base ionizes in water to give hydroxyl ions. Weak (partially ionizes) bases ionizes as follows: B + H 2 O BH + + OHˉ For strong bases e.g.: (NaOH) M(OH) n M n+ + nOHˉ this theory is restricted to water as a solvent only ARRHENIUS THEORY-H + AND OHˉ

Half reaction Acid = H + + base Acid and base of a half-reaction are called conjugate pairs. There must be a combination of two half reaction

Weak Acid A weak acid is an acid that does not completely donate all of its hydrogens when dissolved in water. These acids have higher pH compared to strong acids, which release all of their hydrogens when dissolved in water.

Weak acids and bases weak acids (or bases) are only partially ionized. While mineral (inorganic) acids and bases such as HCl, HCl0 4 , HNO3. and NaOH are strong electrolytes that are totally ionized in water, most organic acids and bases, as found in clinical applications, are weak.

Weak acids and bases Calculation for weak acids and bases Ionization cons. for some common acids have been calculated. Follow the rules for equi. cons. calculation. Example: Calculate the pH and pOH of a 1.0 x 10 -3 solution of acetic acid Solution : HOAc H + + OAc - 5 10 x 75 1 ] [ ] ][ [ - - a . HOAc OAc H K

Weak Acid When acetic acid ionizes, it dissociates to equal portion of H + and OAc - by such an amount will always be equal 1.75 x 10 -5 If the original concentration of acetic acid is C and the concentration of ionized acetic acid species (H + and OAc - ) is x , then the final concentrationof each species at equilibrium is given by:

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
