Unformatted text preview: Calculate the hydroxide ion concentration from a hydronium ion concentration, and vice versa. Identify species as Bronsted acids or bases or Lewis acids and bases. Explain why solutions of weak acids have higher pH values than solutions of strong acids at the same concentration. Write molecular and structural formulas for conjugate acids and bases. Show how the acidity constant of an acid is related to the basicity constant of its conjugate base. Use K a values to predict the relative strengths of two acids or two bases. Calculate the percentage ionization (dissociation) of a weak acid or base. Polyprotic acids and bases. Explain why salts of weak bases produce acidic solutions and salts of weak acids produce basic solutions, and calculate the pH of salt solutions. Be able to explain why rain can be acidic and discuss possible options to reduce acid rain....
