Properties of Acids and Bases • Acids taste sour. Bases taste bitter and feel slippery. • Acids and bases are conductors of electricity. • Acids and bases can be identified by their reactions with some metals and metal carbonates. Properties of Acids and Bases (cont.) • Acids turn blue litmus red. • Bases turn red litmus blue. • Magnesium and zinc react with acids to produce hydrogen gas. • Geologists identify limestone because it produces bubbles of carbon dioxide when exposed to hydrochloric acid. Properties of Acids and Bases (cont.) • All water solutions contain hydrogen ions (H+) and hydroxide ions (OH–). • An acidic solution contains more hydrogen ions than hydroxide ions. • A basic solution contains more hydroxide ions than hydrogen ions. Properties of Acids and Bases (cont.) • The usual solvent for acids and bases is water—water produces equal numbers of hydrogen and hydroxide ions in a process called self-ionization. H2O(l) + H2O(l) ↔ H3O+(aq) + OH–(aq) • The hydronium ion is H3O+. The Arrhenius Model • The Arrhenius model states that an acid is a substance that contains hydrogen and ionizes to produce hydrogen ions in aqueous solution, and a base is a substance that contains a hydroxide group and dissociates to produce a hydroxide ion in solution. The Arrhenius Model (cont.) • Arrhenius acids and bases – HCl ionizes to produce H+ ions. – HCl(g) → H+(aq) + Cl–(aq) – NaOH dissociates to produce OH– ions. – NaOH(s) → Na+(aq) + OH–(aq) – Some solutions produce hydroxide ions even though they do not contain a hydroxide group. The Brønsted-Lowry Model • The Brønsted-Lowry Model of acids and bases states that an acid is a hydrogen ion donor, and a base is a hydrogen ion acceptor. • The Brønsted-Lowry Model is a more inclusive model of acids and bases. The Brønsted-Lowry Model (cont.) • A conjugate acid is the species produced when a base accepts a hydrogen ion. • A conjugate base is the species produced when an acid donates a hydrogen ion. • A conjugate acid-base pair consists of two substances related to each other by donating and accepting a single hydrogen ion. The Brønsted-Lowry Model (cont.) • Hydrogen fluoride—a Brønsted-Lowry acid – HF(aq) + H2O(l) ↔ H3O+(aq) + F–(aq) – HF = acid, H2O = base, H3O+ = conjugate acid, F– = conjugate base The Brønsted-Lowry Model (cont.) • Ammonia— Brønsted-Lowry base – NH3(aq) + H2O(l) ↔ NH4+(aq) + OH–(aq) – NH3 = base, H2O(l) = acid, NH4+ = conjugate acid, OH– = conjugate base • Water and other substances that can act as acids or bases are called amphoteric. Monoprotic and Polyprotic Acids • An acid that can donate only one hydrogen ion is a monoprotic acid. • Only ionizable hydrogen atoms can be donated. Monoprotic and Polyprotic Acids (cont.) • Acids that can donate more than one hydrogen ion are polyprotic acids. The Lewis Model • According to the Lewis model, a Lewis acid is an electron-pair acceptor and a Lewis base is an electron pair donor. • The Lewis model includes all the substances classified as Brønsted-Lowry acids and bases and many more.

Strengths of Acids • Acids that ionize completely are strong acids. • Because they produce the maximum number of hydrogen ions, strong acids are good conductors of electricity. Strengths of Acids (cont.) • Acids that ionize only partially in dilute aqueous solutions are called weak acids. Strengths of Acids (cont.) • With a strong acid, the conjugate base is a weak base. • Equilibrium lies almost completely to the right in the equation because the conjugate base has a weaker attraction for the H+ ion than does the base in the forward reaction. • In a weak acid, the ionization equilibrium lies to the far left in the ionization equation because the conjugate base has a greater attraction for H+ ions than does the base in the forward reaction. Strengths of Acids (cont.) • The equilibrium constant, Keq, provides a quantitative measure of the degree of ionization of an acid. • The acid ionization constant is the value of the equilibrium constant expression for the ionization of a weak acid, Ka. • Ka indicates whether products or reactants are favored at equilibrium. Strengths of Acids (cont.) • For weak acids, the products tend to be smaller compared to the un-ionized molecules (reactant). • Weaker acids have a smaller Ka. Strengths of Bases • A base that dissociates completely into metal ions and hydroxide ions is known as a strong base. • A weak base ionizes only partially in dilute aqueous solution.

Le Châtelier’s principle: states that if a stress is applied to a system at equilibrium, the system shifts in the direction that relieves the stress ion product constant pH and pOH are logarithmic for water scales that express the pH concentrations of hydrogen pOH ions and hydroxide ions in aqueous solutions. Ion Product Constant for Water • Pure water contains equal concentrations of H+ and OH– ions. • The ion production of water, Kw = [H+][OH–]. • The ion product constant for water is the value of the equilibrium constant expression for the self-ionization of water. Ion Product Constant for Water (cont.) • With pure water at 398 K, both [H+] and [OH–] are equal to 1.0 × 10–7M. Kw at 298 K = 1.0 × 10–14 • Kw and LeChâtelier’s Principle proves [H+] × [OH–] must equal 1.0 × 10–14 at 298 K, and as [H+] goes up, [OH–] must go down. pH and pOH • Concentrations of H+ ions are often small numbers expressed in exponential notation. • pH is the negative logarithm of the hydrogen ion concentration of a solution. pH = –log [H+] pH and pOH (cont.) • pOH of a solution is the negative logarithm of the hydroxide ion concentration. • pOH = –log [OH–] • The sum of pH and pOH equals 14. pH and pOH (cont.) • For all strong monoprotic acids, the concentration of the acid is the concentration of H+ ions. • For all strong bases, the concentration of the OH– ions available is the concentration of OH–. • Weak acids and weak bases only partially ionize and Ka and Kb values must be used. pH and pOH (cont.) • Litmus paper and a pH meter with electrodes can determine the pH of a solution.

Reactions Between Acids and Bases • A neutralization reaction is a reaction in which an acid and a base in an aqueous solution react to produce a salt and water. • A salt is an ionic compound made up of a cation from a base and an anion from an acid. • Neutralization is a double-replacement reaction. Reactions Between Acids and Bases (cont.) Reactions Between Acids and Bases (cont.) • Titration is a method for determining the concentration of a solution by reacting a known volume of that solution with a solution of known concentration. Reactions Between Acids and Bases (cont.) • In a titration procedure, a measured volume of an acid or base of unknown concentration is placed in a beaker, and initial pH recorded. • A buret is filled with the titrating solution of known concentration, called a titrant. Reactions Between Acids and Bases (cont.) • Measured volumes of the standard solution are added slowly and mixed into the solution in the beaker, and the pH is read and recorded after each addition. The process continues until the reaction reaches the equivalence point, which is the point at which moles of H+ ion from the acid equals moles of OH– ion from the base. • An abrupt change in pH occurs at the equivalence point. Reactions Between Acids and Bases (cont.) Reactions Between Acids and Bases (cont.) • Chemical dyes whose color are affected by acidic and basic solutions are called acidbase indicators. Reactions Between Acids and Bases (cont.) • An end point is the point at which an indicator used in a titration changes color. • An indicator will change color at the equivalence point. Salt Hydrolysis • In salt hydrolysis, the anions of the dissociated salt accept hydrogen ions from water or the cations of the dissociated salt donate hydrogen ions to water. Salt Hydrolysis (cont.) • Salts that produce basic solutions − KF is the salt of a strong base (KOH) and a weak acid (HF). KF(s) → K+(aq) + F–(aq) Salt Hydrolysis (cont.) • Salts that produce acidic solutions − NH4Cl is the salt of a weak base (NH3) and strong acid (HCl). − When dissolved in water, the salt dissociates into ammonium ions and chloride ions. NH4Cl(s) → NH4+(aq) + Cl–(aq) Salt Hydrolysis (cont.) • Salts that produce neutral solutions − NaNO3 is the salt of a strong acid (HNO3) and a strong base (NaOH). − Little or no salt hydrolysis occurs because neither Na+ nor NO3– react with water. Buffered Solutions • The pH of blood must be kept in within a narrow range. • Buffers are solutions that resist changes in pH when limited amounts of acid or base are added. Buffered Solutions (cont.) • Ions and molecules in a buffer solution resist changes in pH by reacting with any hydrogen ions of hydroxide ions added to the buffered solution. HF(aq) ↔ H+(aq) + F–(aq) • When acid is added, the equilibrium shifts to the left. Buffered Solutions (cont.) • Additional H+ ions react with F– ions to form undissociated HF molecules but the pH changes little. • The amount of acid or base that a buffer solution can absorb without a significant change in pH is called the buffer capacity. Buffered Solutions (cont.) • A buffer is most effective when the concentrations of the conjugate acid-base pair are equal or nearly equal.

Weak acids and weak bases are partially ionized in a dilute aqueous solution. • For weak acids and weak bases, the value of the acid or base ionization constant is a measure of the strength of the acid or base. Section 18.3 Hydrogen Ions and pH Key Concepts • The ion product constant for water, Kw, equals the product of the H+ ion concentration and the OH– ion concentration. Kw = [H+][OH–] • The pH of a solution is the negative log of the hydrogen ion concentration. The pOH is the negative log of the hydroxide ion concentration. pH plus pOH equals 14. pH = –log [H+] pOH = –log [OH–] pH + pOH = 14.00 • A neutral solution has a pH of 7.0 and a pOH of 7.0 because the concentrations of hydrogen ions and hydroxide ions are equal.
