Chemistry Vocab

Chapter 16

Arrhenius Model Acids produce hydrogen ions (H+) in solution Bases produce hydroxide ions (OH-) in solution
Bronsted-Lowry Model An acid is a proton (H+) donor A base is a proton acceptor
Conjugate Acid Substance that's formed when a proton is added to a base *has extra proton (H+) that it can donate*
Conjugate Base Remaining substance when a proton is left from an acid *could steal another proton (H+)
Conjugate acid-base pair Two substances related to each other by the donating and accepting of a single proton
Strong Acid *A reaction is not reversable *Completely dissociates *Weak conjugate base
Weak Acid *Only partially dissociates *Strong conjugate base
Oxyacids Acidic Hydrogen is attached to an oxygen atom
Organic Acid Carbon backbone (usually weak)
pH Measure of the acidity of a solution *pH=-log[H+]
pOH *pOH=-log[OH-]
Indicators Chemicals that change colors in certain pH ranges
Titration A technique used to determine the concentration of an acid or a base using a known concentration
Standard Solution One in which the concentration is known precisely
Buret Device used for the precise and accurate measurement of a given solution
Equivalence Point Point in a titration when enough titrant has been added to exactly neutralize the other
Buffered Solution Resists the change in pH when an acid/base is added *made by adding a weak acid and it's conjugate base*

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
