Honors Chemistry: Ch16 Guided reading (and a little review of ch. 2 and 4)

First go back to p. 49 at the bottom Acids and Bases, read p. 49-52 and take notes
acid -
(The definitions of acid/base above are the Arrhenius definitions)

Next, go back to chapter 4, Section 4.3, p. 105 and read the section and take notes
Acids Properties -

Base Properties -

Bronsted acid-
Bronsted base -
hydronium ion -

Differentiate between monoprotic, diprotic, triprotic acids-

Neutralization reaction -
salt -

Now, back to chapter 16. Read the whole chapter.

Conjugate acid-base pair

Try the practice exercise on the top of p.549

CN- + H2O <-> HCN + OH-
What is Kw? Set up the expression. What is the value?

What is pH?
How do you find the concentration of hydrogen ions if you know the pH?
What is pOH?

Differentiate between strong and weak acids
Differentiate between strong and weak bases
List the strong acids
List the strong bases
Everything else is weak!
What is Ka? How is the expression set up? What does the size of Ka indicate?

What is Kb? How is the expression set up? What does the size of Kb indicate?

Compare strength of acids using molecular structure and electronegativity
hydrohalic acids (acids from halides) -

salt hydrolysis -

Which salts are acidic?

Which salts are basic?
Honors Chemistry: Ch17 Guided reading (and ch. 4)
Read chapter 17 as directed below

Summarize the rules on p. 112 for assigning oxidation numbers

Check your understanding of the rules by going through example 4.5 and the practice exercise.

Take a look at Figure 4.14

How can you use it to tell which substance will be a better reducing agent?

Could you use it to tell which substance will be a better oxidizing agent??? How?

Back to Ch. 19 - Read 19.1
