Chapter 4-glossary

Glossary Chapter 4

Acid a substance that produces H+ ions (protons) when it is dissolved in water; a proton donor
aqueous solution a solution in which water is the dissolving medium or solvent
Base a proton acceptor
complete ionic equation an equation that shows all substances that are strong electrolytes as ions
Dilution the process of adding solvent to lower the concentration of solute in a solution
electrical conductivity the ability to conduct an electrical current
Endpoint the point in a titration at which the indicator changes color
formula equation an equation representing a reaction in solution showing the reactants and products in undissociated form
Hydration the interaction between solute particles and water molecules
Indicator a chemical that changes color and is used to mark the end point of a titration
Molarity moles of solute per volume of solution in liters
net ionic equation an equation for a reaction in solution
neutralization reaction an acid–base reaction
Nonelectrolyte a substance that
Oxidation an increase in oxidation state (a loss of electrons)
oxidation state a concept that provides a way to keep track of electrons in oxidation–reduction reactions according to certain rules
oxidation–reduction (redox) reaction a reaction in which one or more electrons are transferred
oxidizing agent (electron acceptor) a reactant that accepts electrons from another reactant
polar molecule a molecule that has a permanent dipole moment -- that is
Precipitate the solid that forms in a precipitation reaction
precipitation reaction a reaction in which an insoluble substance forms and separates from the solution
reducing agent (electron donor) a reactant that donates electrons to another substance to reduce the oxidation state of one of its atoms
Reduction a decrease in oxidation state (a gain of electrons)
Solubility the amount of a substance that dissolves in a given volume of solvent at a given temperature
Solute a substance dissolved in a liquid to form a solution
Solvent the dissolving medium in a solution
spectator ions ions present in solution that do not participate directly in a reaction
standard solution a solution whose concentration is accurately known
stoichiometric (equivalence) point the point in a titration when enough titrant has been added to react exactly with the substance in solution being titrated
strong acid an acid that completely dissociates to produce an H+ ion and the conjugate base
strong base soluble ionic compounds containing the hydroxide ion (OH-) that
strong electrolyte a material that
Titration delivery of a measured volume of a solution of known concentration into a solution containing a substance being analyzed
volumetric analysis a technique for determining the amount of a certain substance by doing a titration
weak acid an acid that dissociates (ionizes) only to a slight extent in aqueous solutions
weak base a base that reacts with water to produce hydroxide ions to only a slight extent in aqueous solution
weak electrolyte a material that

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.
