Unit 14: Acid/Base Reactions
Key Learning Targets
1) I can analyze acids and bases.
a) I can define acids and bases according to the Arrhenius, Bronsted- Lowry, and Lewis theories and give examples of each.
b) I can identify the Bronsted-Lowry conjugate acid-base pairs and conjugate base-acid pairs in a given reaction.
c) I can identify strengths of acids and bases.
d) I can analyze the pH and pOH scale.
e) I can explain the water ionization constant, Kw, and relate it to [H+] & [OH-].
f) I can predict whether an aqueous solution of a salt is acidic, basic, or neutral.
2) I can perform calculations with weak and strong acids and bases.
a) I can calculate pH and pOH given [H+] & [OH-].
b) I can calculate the pH & pOH of a strong acid & base given its concentration.
c) I can calculate the pH and percent ionization of a weak acid or a weak base.
d) I can determine Ka or Kb when given the molarity and the pH of a weak acid, or weak base.
e) I can calculate the pH of a salt solution.
f) I can calculate the equilibrium constant, K, for a given acid-base reaction using the rules for equilibrium.
g) I can calculate the pH and concentration of other species in a solution of a weak polyprotic acid.
