I can recognize formulas for common inorganic acids, carboxylic acids, and bases formed from families I
and II. (C5.7A)
I can predict products of an acid-base neutralization. (C5.7B)
I can describe tests that can be used to distinguish an acid from a base. (C5.7C)
I can classify various solutions as acidic or basic, given their pH. (C5.7D)
I can explain why lakes with limestone or calcium carbonate experience less adverse effects from acid rain than
lakes with granite beds. (C5.7E)
I can write balanced chemical equations for reactions between acids and bases and perform calculations with
balanced equations. (C5.7f)
I can calculate pH from hydronium ion or hydroxide ion concentration(C5.7g)
