Joseph Leonard Green H 6/1/09 P477 #1-5 1. Compare and contrast the general properties of acids and bases. Acids taste sour, but bases taste bitter. Both acids and bases change the color of a pH indicator strip and conduct electricity. 2. a. Distinguish between binary acids and oxyacids in terms of their component elements and the systems used in naming them. Binary acids consist only of hydrogen and one other element with a high electronegativity. The naming of binary acids consists of the prefix “hydro-” followed by the root of the electronegative element, and ending with the suffix “–ic” Oxyacids are composed of hydrogen oxygen, and a third metal, usually a nonmetal. Naming of oxyacids are based on the names of the polyatomic ions that compose it. b. Give three examples of each. Binary acids – HF (hydrofluoric acid), HI (hydroiodic acid), HBr (hydrobromic acid). Oxyacids – HClO (hypochlorous acid), CH 3 COOH (acetic acid), HIO 3 (iodic acid) 3. Identify and describe the characteristic properties of five common acids used in
