Ch 31: Acids & Bases in Water

About This Chapter

Master the subject of acids and bases in water by reviewing lessons on stoichiometry, standard solution, and titrations. The fun and interactive lessons in this chapter can be a valuable resource to use when preparing for a test or working on class assignments.

Acids & Bases in Water - Chapter Summary

By going through this chapter on acids and bases in water, you can review titration of a strong acid or base. You can also strengthen your understanding of how to calculate relative quantities in a gas or solution. By the end of the chapter, you should be ready to:

  • Make stoichiometry calculations
  • Define standard solution
  • Explain how to dilute a new solution from a stock solution
  • Calculate the concentration of an acid
  • Discuss titrations with weak acids and weak bases

A brief quiz is available for each lesson to test your understanding of acids and bases in water. These engaging lessons can help you easily understand the topics presented. A full written transcript accompanies each video just in case you are partial to text-based learning.

Stoichiometry: Calculating Relative Quantities in a Gas or Solution

1. Stoichiometry: Calculating Relative Quantities in a Gas or Solution

Stoichiometry is the study of relative quantities in substances that undergo physical or chemical changes. Learn about stoichiometry of gases, molar volume, solutions, and how to use the four-step process to calculate relative quantities in a gas or solution.

Standard Solution: Definition & Method

2. Standard Solution: Definition & Method

Used primarily in analytical chemistry, standard solutions contain a known and accurate amount of a chemical or element. Learn more about standard solutions by exploring primary standards, concentration, and an example using the molarity equation.

Calculating Dilution of Solutions

3. Calculating Dilution of Solutions

Calculating the dilution of solutions is important for scientists who want to know how much water to add to a concentrated solution. Explore several examples of solution dilutions, and discover how to properly make a solution through in-depth equations.

Titration of a Strong Acid or a Strong Base

4. Titration of a Strong Acid or a Strong Base

In acid-base chemistry, titrations can be used to determine the concentration of an unknown solution. Explore titration, titrant, neutralization reaction and equivalence point, and how to perform a titration and interpret a titration curve.

Titrations with Weak Acids or Weak Bases

5. Titrations with Weak Acids or Weak Bases

In chemistry, titration uses known solutions (titrants) to analyze unknown solutions and their properties. Learn about titration curves and how they differ based on titrations between weak acids and strong bases or between strong acids and weak bases.
