Unformatted text preview: A molecule acts as an acid or a base only with respects to its reaction with water. TERMINOLOGY Strong Acid/Base dissociates completely in water. Weak Acid/Base dissociates only partially. TITRATION: measured reaction of acid with base I to a certain endpoint. 3 Terms: Neutralization point: acid/base react up to neutral solution. Equivalous Point: base added sufficient to react with all the acid. (not necessarily neutral) Strong: Acids Bases HCl NaOH HBr KOH HNo3 HCl)4 H2SO4 Most of the other acids or bases are weak. Strong and weak does not mean how powerful or vicious the compound may be, but in respect only to how it dissociates in water! IMPORTANT PH: Defined: pH = -log10(H+) pOH = -log10(OH-) pK = -log10K...
