About This Chapter
Georgia Milestones - Physical Science EOC: Solutions - Chapter Summary
Using our engaging lesson format and handy tools, the instructors in this chapter will walk you through solutions, solutes, and solvents; the properties of acidic and basic solutions; and examples of neutral solutions as well. The lessons will help you on the chemistry portions of the Georgia Milestones - Physical Science EOC Assessment. By the end of this chapter you will also have studied:
- Acid-base reactions and the process of neutralization
- Calculation of a solution's pH or pOH
- The definition of solubility and the use of solubility curves
- The difference between a covalent and ionic solute
The videos in this chapter are time efficient, usually coming in at less than ten minutes, and topic-searchable for quick review. Textual elements come with highlighted vocabulary words and occasional links to related content that can enhance your contextual understanding of the material. Lesson quizzes and the practice exam are a great way to help ensure your retention of the information for test day.
1. Solutions, Solutes, and Solvents
Oh no! Your friend Ben just drank chili oil on a dare, and now his mouth is burning. Should he drink the ice water or vegetable oil to cool his mouth? Quick. Watch this lesson if you aren't sure.
2. Acidic Solutions: Properties & Examples
Acidic solutions are found everywhere in the natural world and are an important part of our everyday lives. This lesson defines acidic solutions and discusses their fundamental properties. Several examples of acidic solutions from the natural world and industry are also provided.
3. Basic Solutions in Chemistry: Properties & Examples
Basic solutions are very important components of many different chemical reactions. This lesson provides an introduction to bases, basic solutions, and their properties. Several examples of basic solutions in action are also provided.
4. Neutral Solution: Definition & Examples
Did you know that tap water and even human blood are neutral solutions? Continue reading to learn what neutral solutions are and how to identify them.
5. Neutralization and Acid-Base Reactions
From this lesson, you will understand the neutralization process between acids and bases. Learn how a hydroxide ion from a base reacts with a hydronium ion from an acid to neutralize each other and form water. Discover what conjugate acids and bases are and what the definition of amphoteric is.
6. The pH Scale: Calculating the pH of a Solution
Learn the history of the pH scale, how to describe it and why it is used by scientists. Discover how to calculate the pH of an acid or base solutions given either the hydroxide ion concentration or the hydronium ion concentration. Learn how to start with the pH and calculate the hydroxide and hydronium ion concentrations.
7. Solubility and Solubility Curves
Learn what solubility is as well as the definitions of 'saturated,' 'unsaturated' and 'supersaturated.' Learn how to determine the solubility of a substance in water by using a solubility curve. Discover the effects of pressure and temperature on the solubility of liquids, solids and gases.
8. Ionic & Covalent Solutes: Definition & Difference
In this lesson we will discuss what happens when we dissolve two different types of compounds in liquids: ionic and covalent solutes. The chemical differences between these solutes affect the properties of the solutions they form.
