4. Acidic aqueous solutions conduct electricity. Properties of Aqueous Solutions of Acids and Bases Aqueous basic solutions have the following properties: 1. They have a bitter taste. 2. They have a slippery feeling. 3. They change the colors of many indicators Bases turn red litmus to blue. Bases turn bromothymol blue from yellow to blue. 4. They react with acids to form salts and water. 5. Aqueous basic solutions conduct electricity. The Arrhenius Theory Svante Augustus Arrhenius first presented this theory of acids and bases in 1884. Acids are substances that contain hydrogen and produce H + in aqueous solutions. Two examples of substances that behave as Arrhenius acids:

Unformatted text preview: The Arrhenius Theory Bases are substances that contain the hydroxyl, OH, group and produce hydroxide ions, OH-, in aqueous solutions. Two examples of substances that behave as Arrhenius bases: The Arrhenius Theory Neutralization reactions are the combination of H + (or H 3 O + ) with OH-to form H 2 O. Strong acids are acidic substances that ionize 100% in water. List of aqueous strong acids: HCl, HBr, HI, H 2 SO 4 , HNO 3 , HClO 4 , HClO 3 Strong bases are basic substances that ionize 100% in water. List of aqueous strong bases: LiOH, NaOH, KOH, RbOH, CsOH,...
