Presentation Transcript

The strength of an acid (or base) is determined by the amount of IONIZATION.

HNO3, HCl, H2SO4 and HClO4 are among the only known strong acids.

- Weak acids are much less than 100% ionized in water.
One of the best known is acetic acid = CH3CO2H

Strong and Weak Acids/Bases

- Generally divide acids and bases into STRONG or WEAK ones.
STRONG ACID:HNO3 (aq) + H2O (l) ---> H3O+ (aq) + NO3- (aq)

HNO3 is about 100% dissociated in water.

Strong and Weak Acids/Bases

- Strong Base:100% dissociated in water.
NaOH (aq) ---> Na+ (aq) + OH- (aq)

Other common strong bases include KOH andCa(OH)2.

CaO+ H2O -->Ca(OH)2

- Weak base:less than 100% ionized in water
One of the best known weak bases is ammonia

NH3 (aq) + H2O (l) NH4+ (aq) + OH- (aq)

Calculating the pH

pH = - log [H+]

pH is a measure of the hydrogen ion concentration, [H+]

(Remember that the [ ] mean Molarity)

Example: If [H+] = 1 X 10-10pH = - log 1 X 10-10

pH = 10

Example: If [H+] = 1.8 X 10-5pH = - log 1.8 X 10-5

pH = 4.74

Try These!

Find the pH of these:

1) A 0.15 M solution of Hydrochloric acid

2) A 3.00 X 10-7 M solution of Nitric acid

H/O pH Practice Worksheet

Find the pOH of a 0.1M NaOH solution

pOH = -log(0.1)

pOH = 1

pH + pOH = 14

Example:

Find the pOH of a solution of HCl that has a pH of 3.4.

pH = 3.4

pOH = 14 – 3.4 = 10.6

Calculating the pOHpOH = -log [OH-]pOH is a measure of the hydroxide ion concentration, [OH-]pH calculations – Solving for H+

If the pH of Coke is 3.12, [H+] = ???

Because pH = - log [H+] then

- pH = log [H+]

Take antilog (10x) of both sides and get

10-pH =[H+]

[H+] = 10-3.12 = 7.6 x 10-4 M

*** to find antilog on your calculator, look for “Shift” or “2nd function” and then the log button

pH calculations – Solving for H+

- A solution has a pH of 8.5. What is the Molarity of hydrogen ions in the solution?

pH = - log [H+]

8.5 = - log [H+]

-8.5 = log [H+]

Antilog -8.5 = antilog (log [H+])

10-8.5 = [H+]

3.16 X 10-9 = [H+]

Water

H2O can function as both an ACID and a BASE (amphoteric).

In pure water there can beAUTOIONIZATION

Equilibrium constant for water = Kw

Kw = [H3O+] [OH-] =1.00 x 10-14at 25 oC

More About Water

Autoionization

Kw = [H3O+] [OH-] = 1.00 x 10-14 at 25 oC

In a neutral solution [H3O+] = [OH-]

so Kw = [H3O+]2 = [OH-]2

and so [H3O+] = [OH-] = 1.00 x 10-7 M

The OH- ion concentration of a blood sample is 2.5 x 10-7 M. What is the pH of the blood?

The pH of rainwater collected in a certain region of the northeastern United States on a particular day was 4.82. What is the H+ ion concentration of the rainwater?

Calculating [H3O+], pH, [OH-], and pOH

Problem 1: A chemist dilutes concentrated hydrochloric acid to make two solutions: (a) 3.0 M and (b) 0.0024 M. Calculate the [H+], pH, [OH-], and pOH of the two solutions at 25°C.

Problem 2: What is the [H+], [OH-], and pOH of a solution with pH = 3.67? Is this an acid, base, or neutral?

Problem 3: Problem #2 with pH = 8.05?

Cheat Sheet

- To find pH use: –log of M
- To find pOH: 14-pH
- To find [H+]: 2nd log -pH
- To find [OH-]: 2nd log -pOH
