Ions & _______ Compounds that dissociate in water and produce cations other than H+ and anions other than OH- are called salts . The most familiar salt is sodium chloride , the principal component of common table salt . Other examples of salts: Baking soda (NaHCO3) Epsom Salts (MgSO4) From the Virtual Cell Biology Classroom on ScienceProfOnline.com

Salts: The Role of ________ • Certain salts, called buffers, can combine with excess hydrogen (H+) or hydroxyl (OH-) ions. • Produce substances less acidic or alkaline. Example: Antacids like Tums are buffers made of the salt calcium carbonate (CaCo3). From the Virtual Cell Biology Classroom on ScienceProfOnline.com

Reactions Involving Ions Remember… Ion = an atom which has lost or gained one or more electrons, so it’s negatively or positively charged. The Principle of _______ ________ is a common water softening method. From the Virtual Cell Biology Classroom on ScienceProfOnline.com

Lets use a Branganalogy to help us Understand the Concept of Ion Exchange 1. Brad Pitt is a negatively charged resin bead 2. Jennifer Anniston is a positively charged Sodium ion 3. Angelina Jolie is a positively charged Calcium Ion Na+ Ca++ Now lets say that ‘positiveness’ equates with ‘drop-dead gorgeousness’ Negatively charged Brad is attracted to reasonably positive Jennifer. Na+ Na+ Ca++ - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Negatively charged Brad lets go of reasonably positive Jennifer in the presence of insanely positive Angelina.

_________ Bonds Hydrogen Bonds: When an atom of hydrogen is attracted to two atoms instead of only one. Hydrogen bonds attract molecules to each other, but do not technically bond atoms together . Bonding electrons are shared unequally by the hydrogen and oxygen atoms: negative charge (-) forms at ______ end positive charge (+) forms at _______end When the electrons in a covalent bond are not equally shared, the molecule is _____.
