Conjugate Acids and Bases
This video introduces students to the concept of Conjugate Acids and Bases. The important point for students to grasp, and Sal does a nice job illustrating this point, is that for every conjugate acid/base pair, the weaker the acid, the stronger its base will be. The weaker the base, the stronger its conjugate acid will be.
Acids and Bases
Acquaint your chemistry class with acids and bases by showing this bold and bright PowerPoint. Viewers learn about the characteristics of acids and bases and stop at intervals to answer several questions about what they are learning. Use this on the day that you introduce this topic, and follow it with laboratory exercises in which young chemists observe some of these characteristics up close.
pH of a Weak Acid
In the previous video, Sal outlined what happens when a strong acid is put into reaction with another compound. In this presentation, he describes what happens when a weak acid is introduced. Sal explains why Hydrofluoric acid is much weaker than Hydrochloric acid, and shows how the molecules disassociate themselves from the weak acid much more rapidly than they do in a strong acid during a chemical reaction.
Acid Base Titration
The use of acid-base titration as a way to find the mass of oxalic acid is the focus of this chemistry video. Sal takes a sample problem from a chemistry textbook and solves it. The math involved in the process is quite complex.
How to Teach Students about Acid and Acid Rain
How acidic is your rainwater? Use these lesson plans to get students thinking about how acids affect the environment in which we live.
Weak Acid Titration
The previous video illustrated what happened when a strong acid is added to water. This presentation illustrates what happens when a weak acid is added. On the left axis, pH levels are measured. The horizontal axis represents two liters of water. The weaker acid is added to the water. This video shows what happens to the pH levels, and how the equivalence point is determined based on how much of the weak acid is added.
Strong Acid Titration
Strong Acid Titration is the focus of this chemistry video. Sal sets us up a graph. On the left axis, pH levels are measured. The horizontal axis represents two liters of water. The strong acid Hydroxide is added to the water. This video shows what happens to the pH levels, and how the equivalence point is determined based on how much hydroxide is added.
Krebs/Citric Acid Cycle
This second video on respiration focuses on the Krebs cycle, which is sometimes known as the citric acid cycle.
Chapter 15 Review, Section 2: Acid-Base Titration and pH
Keep it simple with this chemistry assignment. Learners examine an acid-base titration graph and answer four questions about the data. Then they will balance neutralization equations and calculate molarity for several specific solutions. Give this to your class as homework or a quick review before a quiz on acid-base titration.
Acid Chemistry Experiment
Testing the pH levels of household products and then experimenting with acids and bases sounds like the start of a great afternoon. Children discuss the properties of acids, how they taste, and what acids do. Then, they conduct several simple experiments where they see the powers of acids firsthand. They dissolve a penny, create a cabbage indicator, and see how bases neutralize acids. Full experiment procedures, background information, helpful websites, and a worksheet are all included.
Chapter 14 Review/Acids and Bases
Two pages take chemistry learners on a survey of acids and bases. High schoolers write formulas and name compounds. They identify conjugate bases and acids with the aid of a table (not provided). On the second page, two different acids found in nature are described for learners to answer questions about. A well-rounded worksheet that will stretch their critical thinking skills!
Acid Rain Effects
Get out the goggles and conduct a simple experiment to model and explore the harmful effects of acid rain (vinegar) on living (green leaf and eggshell) and non-living (paper clip) objects. Young chemists observe and describe the harmful effects acid rain has on living and non-living items, they explain why engineers are concerned about acid rain and discuss how they are working to prevent pollution and acid rain.
Chapter 14 Review, Section 3: Acids and Bases
Aside from a mention of a textbook page, this chemistry assignment is a suitable review of acids and bases. It begins by addressing conjugate pairs and acid base reactions. Neutralization and amphoteric properties are also dealt with. The worksheet concludes with two real-life word problems.
Chapter 14 Review, Section 2: Acids and Bases
Lewis acids and bases, Brønsted-Lowry acids and bases, ionization, and more are covered by this chemistry handout. It serves as a review of a specific textbook section, but will also serve as a nice review for any general chemistry class. The worksheet looks professional and is worthwhile.
The Effects of Acid Rain on the Environment
Middle schoolers work in groups to expose healthy plants to various environmental conditions. Each group is assigned a different amount of lemon juice to add to their water source, simulating acid rain. Some water is administered through the soil to the roots, and some is dropped onto a single leaf daily. Every other day over a two week period, they record their observations. An organized lesson plan is provided for the teacher and links to handouts are provided for investigators.
Chapter 15 Review/Acid-Base Titration and pH
Chemistry stars calculate ion concentrations, pOH, or pH in different solutions. For questions in the latter half of the worksheet, they also have to explain why a solution is acidic, basic, or neutral and solve for molarity of a solute. This assignment provides a general overview of acid-base titrations.
Simulated acid rain, a dilute sulfuric acid solution, needs to be prepared for this demonstration. After a condensed lecture on acid rain, you will apply the solution to a sample of granite and a sample of limestone. Your young scientists will create a data table in which to record the pH of the acid rain both before and after passing through the stone samples. The instructional activity is not exciting, but it effectively shows how limestone can have a buffering effect for the plants and animals.
Students develop an understanding of how aspirin works and how understanding it's interaction with other chemicals in the body aided doctors in medical research. They complete a lab that compares the reaction of regular aspirin and buffered aspirin in neutral, acidic, and basic solutions.
Acids and Bases I
In this acids and bases worksheet, students complete 34 multiple choice and problem solving questions on pH and pOH of solutions. They write net ionic equations for given reactions.
Acids and Bases
Students use supporting evidence to predict if common household substances are acids or bases. They determine the pH of the substances and describe the results of the investigation and characteristics of each substance.
