ACIDS, BASES AND SALTS Water (H 2 O) is made of two ions H + (aq) – hydrogen ion OH - (aq) – hydroxide ion Acids – substances that increase H + (aq) conc. Strong acids - strong electrolytes, i. e., completely dissociate HCl (aq) = H + (aq) + Cl - (aq) - memorize list HCl, HBr, HI, HNO 3 , H 2 SO 4 , HClO 3 , HClO 4 Weak acids - weak electrolytes HF (aq) D H + (aq) + F - (aq) HF (aq) HF (aq) + H + (aq) + F - (aq) a lot a little a little H 3 PO 4 (aq) D H + (aq) + H 2 PO 4 - (aq) Bases – substances that increase OH - concentration Strong bases - strong electrolytes - all alkali metal hydroxides LiOH, NaOH, KOH, RbOH, CsOH - some alkaline earth metal hydroxides Ca(OH) 2 , Sr(OH) 2 , Ba(OH) 2 Weak bases - weak electrolytes - usually increase OH - (aq) conc. “indirectly” by decreasing H + (aq) conc. NH 3 (aq) + H 2 O (l) D NH 4 + (aq) + OH - (aq) Neutralization reaction Acid + Base Water + Salt Salt - ionic compound - cations and anions remaining after water is made HNO 3 (aq) + KOH (aq) H 2 O (l) + KNO 3 (aq) acid base water salt

THE AUTOIONIZATION OF WATER - Water is not a nonelectrolyte, actually it is a very weak electrolyte. - One out of every 10 million water molecules dissociates into an H + ion and a OH - ion. H 2 O (l) D H + (aq) + OH - (aq) Ion product of water Write equilibrium expression [ ][ ] [ ] K H OH H O c = + - 2 - Since H 2 O is solvent, we will neglect it in equilibrium expression. No matter what conditions exist in an aqueous solution, the following expression is true. (at 25 ° C) [ ][ ] H OH M + - - = × 10 10 14 2 . Ion product is also known as K w . [ ][ ] K H OH M w = = + - - 10 14 2 Aside: Other solvents autoionize as well. NH 3 + NH 3 D NH 4 + + NH 2 - CH 3 OH + CH 3 OH D CH 3 OH 2 + + CH 3 O - Since [ ][ ] H OH M + - - = 10 14 2 is always true - if we know [H + ], we can calculate [OH - ] - if we know [OH - ], we can calculate [H + ] Example: If a solution has [H + ] = 1.8 x 10 -5 M, what is [OH - ]? Example: If a solution has [OH - ] = 9.4 x 10 -12 M, what is [H + ]?
