# Acid – Base Theory - PowerPoint PPT Presentation

Acid – Base Theory. Definitions:. Arrhenius: An acid is a substance that increases the H + (or H 3 O + ) concentration in an aqueous solution. HCl + H 2 O  H 3 O + + Cl -. HCl  H + + Cl -. A base is a substance that increases the OH - concentration

Presentation Transcript

Arrhenius:

An acid is a substance that increases the H+ (or H3O+) concentration in an aqueous solution.

HCl + H 2O  H3O+ + Cl-

HCl  H+ + Cl-

A base is a substance that increases the OH- concentration

in an aqueous solution.

NaOH(s)  Na+ + OH-

Acid/Base reactions:

Produce water and a salt (and sometimes carbon dioxide).

Hint: concentrate on the water first. Remember, water has the formula HOH.

Complete and balance the following:

HCl + KOH 

HOH + KCl

HCl + Ca(OH)2

2

2HOH + CaCl2

Require equal numbers

1. Ba(OH)2 + H3PO4

2. HC2H3O2 + NaOH

3. H2SO4 + KOH

4. H2CO3 + NaOH

5. NH4OH + H2SO4

6. NH3 + HCl 

HCl + KOH 

HOH + KCl

NH3 + HCl  NH4+ + Cl-

An Acid that is 100% ionized in water.

Strong Acids:

100% ionized (completely dissociated) in water.

HCl + H2O  H3O+ + Cl-

often written as:

HCl  H+ + Cl-

100% ionized (completely dissociated) in water.

HCl + H2O  H3O+ + Cl-

Strong Acids:

Perchloric HClO4

Chloric, HClO3

Hydrobromic, HBr

Hydrochloric, HCl

Hydroiodic, HI

Nitric, HNO3

Sulfuric, H2SO4

A base that is completely dissociated in water (highly soluble).

NaOH(s)  Na+ + OH-

Strong Bases:

Group 1A metal hydroxides

(LiOH, NaOH, KOH,

RbOH, CsOH)

Heavy Group 2A metal hydroxides

[Ca(OH)2, Sr(OH)2, and

Ba(OH)2]

100% ionized (completely dissociated) in water.

HCl + H2O  H3O+ + Cl-

Note the “one way arrow”.

Weak Acids:

Only a small % (dissociated) in water.

HC2H3O2 + H2O H3O+ + C2H3O2-

Note the “2-way” arrow.

Note: At any given time only a small portion of the acid molecules are ionized and since reactions are running in BOTH directions the mixture composition stays the same.
