Dhaval Rana Chemistry I May 14, 2008 Objective: Which of the following substances are strong and which are weak ionizes? Dissolving is to make to make a solution of, as by mixing with a liquid; mixing a liquid solvent and a solute to form a clear solution. Dissociation is a general process in which ionic compounds ( complexes , molecules , or salts ) separate or split into smaller molecules, ions, or radicals , usually in a reversible manner. When a Bronsted-Lowry acid is put in water, a covalent bond between an electronegative atom and a hydrogen atom is broken by hydrolytic fission , which gives a proton and a negative ion . Acid is a substance that dissolves in water with the formation of hydrogen ions, contains hydrogen, which may be replaced by metals to form salt, and/or is corrosive. The pH of a acid is less than 7. Common examples include acetic acid (in vinegar ) and sulfuric acid (used in car batteries ). Base is most commonly thought of as a substance that can accept protons
