Hints for Working Acid/Base Equilibrium Problems
In this acid/base equilibrium worksheet, students are given examples of how to solve problems based on the types of acids and bases present in solutions with 5 steps.
Water Quality and Environmental Pollution
Learners use litmus paper to begin to discover the qualities of acids and bases. They learn about pH by testing clear liquids for acidity with purple cabbage juice as an indicator. The video Streamkeeper, with Bill Nye, and other video resources (not included), along with observations of a potted plant watered with vinegar solution, illuminate the sources and effects of acid rain on the environment. Cross-curricular extensions and links to useful websites are included.
Soil Acidity and Leaching
Young scholars are introduced to the concept of acids and bases and arouse curiosity about acids and bases in daily life. They are introduced to the measurement of soil pH. Pupils are introduced to the effect of soil pH on nutrient cycling and loss. They are also introduced to the environmental impact of soil acidity.
Indicator Sponge A Discrepant Event Demonstration
Students explore the use of acid and base pH indicators. The teacher saturates an indicator sponge with congo red solution. Afterwards, the sponge is placed in a blue base solution. Students observe that the blue sponge actually turns red. They discuss the explanations for the color change.
The Colors of Chemistry
Students investigate the acidity and alkalinity of common household products in an experiment. They use red cabbage juice and litmus paper to show the difference between strong acids and bases as they work with vinegar, dish washing liquid, baking soda, and a number of other substances. After the experiment, they analyze the data that they collect.
In this water equilibrium worksheet, students determine identify the type of acid or base a given compound is, they calculate the pH of solutions at equilibrium and they determine molar solubilities and ranks.
In this water equilibria worksheet, students calculate the pH of solutions, they fill in a table with the type of acid or base given a compound and it's concentration and they calculate approximate solubilities for salts.
Chemistry in Foods
Students investigate foods that are indicators, and acids and bases. In this food chemistry lesson plan, students test household products with litmus paper and with food indicators. They use blackberry, onion and red cabbage indicators to test acids and bases.
Young chemists learns about acids and bases by coming up with a solution that will test for each. They also access the Internet to perform research. They are encouraged to contact students in other schools by conducting the experiment at the same time and comparing results. The experiment is simple to run, and the materials needed are easy to find.
Acids And Bases
In this acid and base chemistry worksheet, students solve 25 clues in a crossword puzzle based on the pH of common household solutions and common names of chemical compounds.
Acids and Bases
Students study acid and bases and how they fall on the pH scale. In this solutions lesson students complete a lob activity using litmus then fill out a data table.
Acid and Base Problems
In this acid and base worksheet, students use seven steps to calculate concentrations of ions in acidic and basic solutions. They also determine the type of acid or base.
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.
Acids and Bases: Together again!
Students identify principles behind acid-base reactions. They predict factors that may affect an acid-base reaction. Students identify questions and concepts that guide scientific investigations.
AP Chemistry Topic 7: Acids & Bases, Part A
A variety of skills are needed to complete this assignment. Strong acids and bases are to be described using the Arrhenius model, balanced equations written and analyzed for acid dissociations, and then concentrations calculated for different solutions. This worksheet will come in handy for you to give as homework or as a review in your advanced chemistry course.
AP Chemistry Topic 7: Acids and Bases, Review - More Titrations
Young chemists analyze Titration curves as part of this acids and bases worksheet. Other problems include calculating concentrations, determining equilibrium constants, and a few multiple-choice questions. Since this resource uses a variety of question types, you could use it as a quiz.
New! Study Jams! Acids and Bases
This video about pH will not leave a sour taste in your mouth! Through clear explanations and a little humor, upcoming chemists will learn the definitions and properties of acids and bases, as well as how pH is measured. This would make an engaging review assignment during a unit on the properties of matter.
The pH scale
Students list the common properties of acids and bases. They classify substances as acids or bases, by using pH and litmus tests and are able to explain the pH scale. They participate in a lab activity which reinforce their understanding.
Students evaluate pH levels through a solubility experiment. In this pH levels lesson plan, students list characteristics of acids and bases. Students complete their own pH level experiment. Students go to the GEMS Alien Juice Bar website to test their knowledge of acids and bases for pH solutions.
Acid, Base, or Salt?
In this acids and bases worksheet, students read about the differences between acids and bases and then complete a table comparing the characteristics of both. Then students determine if the given statements describe an acid, base, or salt. This worksheet has 1 graphic organizer and 21 matching questions.
