Chemistry XXI Context To illustrate the power of the concepts, ideas, and ways of thinking discussed in the course, we will focus our attention on understanding the causes and effects of water acidification in our environment. In which ways can we use what we have learned to help us predict and control water acidification in our planet? Why do we care?
