Arrhenius Definitions Ari acid is a substance that produces hydronium ions, H30+(aq), when it is added to water. A base is a substance that produces hydroxide ions, OH—(aq), when it is added to water. Bronsted-Lowry Definitions ii An acid is a substance that donates a proton, HJ“, to another species. j- A base is a substance that accepts a proton, Hi", from another species. Acrd—base reactions are one of the most important types of chemical reactions. Table 1.

Within the Bronsted-Lowry model, certain pairs of molecules are described as a conjugate acid—base pair. The two species in a conjugate acid-base pair differ by a proton only. A base is said to have a conjugate acid, and an acid is said to have a conjugate base. _ 2_ HCO3 CO3 remove H+ _.__v Q—'— add H+ Tableiz. Examples of conjugate acid-base pairs.

H20 molecules are not shown The water-dissociation equilibrium constant, KW, is (at 25 °C) Kw = [H30+] [one] = 1.0 x 1044 Several definitions have been found to be useful: pH e -10s [H30+} ifs—iwll‘j W M i“ t' 4‘33 CW] pOH 5 Vlog [OH‘] pKw E —log Kw In general, pX E ~logX For pX expressions involving concentrations, the concentration units are always mole/liter, but they are omitted in the calculation. Thus, for example, values for pH are unitless. Note on significant figures. For logarithms, the number of significant figures is determined by the number of digits to the right of the decimal point. The value to the left of the decimal point indicates only the power of ten by which the number is to be multiplied. For example, if pH = 2.15, then the corresponding value for {HgOfi has only - 2 significant figures (7.1 x 10—3). The "2" in the value "2.15" is not considered a significant figure in the conversion to concentration. ChemActivity 45 pH 265 Critical Thinking Questions 1.
