Buffer capacityThe amount of acid or base that can be added to a buffer without destroying its effectiveness.Equivalence pointThe point in a titration at which the added solute completely reacts with the solute present in the solution; for acid-base titrations; the point at which the amount of acid is stoichiometrically equal to the amount of base in solution.End pointThe point of pH change where an indicator changes color.Qualitative analysisA systemic way to determine the ions present in an unknown solution.Quantitative analysisA systematic way to determine the amounts of substances in a solution or a mixture.Solubility product constant(Ksp) the equilibrium expression for a chemical equation representing the dissolution of a slightly to moderately soluble ionic compound.Acid-base titrationA laboratory procedure in which a basic (or acidic) solution of unknown concentration is reacted with an acidic (or basic) solution of known concentration, in order to determine the concentration of the unknownCommon ion effectThe tendency for a common ion to decrease the solubility of an ionic compound or to decrease the ionization of a weak acid or weak base.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
