In a water solution how do acids differ from bases?
they give different ions H+ or OH-
Neutralization A neutral pH of 7 may mean that you are dealing with distilled water containing no acids and bases. In this case, the amount of hydrogen ions and hydroxide ions will be equivalent because they will both be due to the ionization of water. However, a neutral pH can also be achieved in a solution containing acids and bases as long as the acids and bases have neutralized each other, meaning that the acids…
According to Arrhenius, acids produce a proton in aqueous solution, and bases produce a hydroxide ion in aqueous solution. Hydrochloric acid is an Arrhenius acid because it gives up its proton as it dissolves in water. Sodium hydroxide is an Arrhenius base because it gives up its hydroxide as it dissolves in water.
What ions are produced by acids in water and bases in water Give two properties each of acids and bases?
What does the chemically buffered combination of strong acids that dissociate completely in water with weak bases such as hydroxides lead to?
The products present in water by the addition of acids or bases in water is dependent on the strength of the acid/base. Strong acids/bases will completely dissociate into their conjugate base/acid. Weak acids/bases however do not completely dissociate and therefore some of the weak acid/bases would be present alongside the conjugate base/acid.
Acids are those substances which when dissolved into water give the solution a hydrogen activity greater than in pure water or it is a substance that donates a proton. Similarly, a base is a substance which accepts a proton. There is no major similarity in acids and bases rather they have opposite nature. One minor similarity is that common acids and bases contain hydrogen atoms.
