Unit 8: Acid and Bases

Study Guide for Unit 8 is located here.

Acid/Base chemistry has great relevance to our world. Many chemical around us from household products to pharmaceuticals have acid/base properties. We will learn more about the notorious acids, which everyone has heard about and the not-so-notorious bases that are just as equally important (and scary). To be discussed: Arrhenius Theory, Bronsted-Lowry Theory, acid-base strength (degree of dissociation), pH concept, pH calculation, pOH, indicators, neutralization reactions, and acid-base titration calculations and lab technique.
