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

In this lesson, learn about molar volume and how to set up and make stoichiometric calculations with gases. Then learn about solution stoichiometry and how to make stoichiometric calculations with solutions.

Standard Solution: Definition & Method

2. Standard Solution: Definition & Method

In this lesson, learn about standard solutions and the characteristics that define them. Explore what they are, as well as learn the method behind how to make one.

Calculating Dilution of Solutions

3. Calculating Dilution of Solutions

Learn what a solution is and how to properly dilute a new solution from a stock solution. Learn the dilution equation that combines molarity, the volume of stock solution and desired solution to determine how much stock solution is needed for the new solution.

Titration of a Strong Acid or a Strong Base

4. Titration of a Strong Acid or a Strong Base

Discover what titration is and how to calculate the concentration of an acid or base that has been titrated to equivalence. Learn the meaning of titrant, standard solution and equivalence point. Study titration curves and learn how to determine pH during any point of a titration between a strong acid and strong base.

Titrations with Weak Acids or Weak Bases

5. Titrations with Weak Acids or Weak Bases

Learn about titrations with weak acids or weak bases in this lesson. Study their titration curves and learn about some of their important characteristics. Learn how to calculate pH during titrations involving weak acids and strong bases.
