  • Bases and Alkalis

    601 Words  | 2 Pages

    Bases and Alkalis A base is a compound that reacts with and neutralises an acid. The reaction forms a salt plus water. Alkalis are a type of base - ones that dissolve in water. Alkalis are compounds that react and neutralise acids. Like bases, they form a salt and water in the reaction. Alkalis turn red litmus indicator paper blue and they cause Universal Indicator paper to turn blue or purple. Alkaline solutions have a pH value greater than 7. Alkaline solutions feel soapy and are

    861 Words  | 2 Pages

    INTRODUCTION We encounter acids and bases on our daily lives. Acids are substances that have a pH of less than 7. On the other hand, bases have pH of greater than 7. They both react to each other to form salt. Acids and bases also exhibit some characteristics like acids are sour and bases are bitter in taste. Acids are also rough in texture while bases are slippery. But you can’t just touch or taste acids and bases as some strong acids and strong bases are dangerous. They contain chemicals that are

    The sought to determine the effects of mixing various levels of acids and bases to see which combination would have the most explosive reaction, and measure the resulting pH levels. I did this by testing an assortment of different pH levels of acids and bases, mixing them together and measuring the results. Most of the experiments resulted in a pH neutral solution, except for the Sulfuric Acid and the Sodium Hydroxide. By far, the Sulfuric Acid was the most explosive, followed by the Citric and Acetic

He is horrified and appalled at the way the majors act while men are dying out in the battle field. Mr. Sassoon is so furious towards the majors that it takes more than just one word to describe how indignified Sassoon is. These great feelings of anger are derived from the fact that the majors are living a life of luxury while sending young men "up the line" out into

    Question: What is the effect of acids and bases on apple oxidation? Background Information: Apple discoloring, is the process of the skin turning brown when bruised and exposed to air. The browning is due to oxygen, O2, reacting with chemicals which breaks down the cells in the fruit. The reaction is called enzymatic oxidation a process that is started by the enzymes that are present in the apples which starts the browning process of the apple. However, the enzymes are quickly destroyed by chemicals

    INTRODUCTION Acids and bases always challenged me throughout the years of learning them so when I learned I am going to face this topic again I thought it will be the best idea to a experiment for learning better therefore my aim for this project was learning the fundamentals of this topic. Acids and bases are really important in functioning cell. Majority of them are harmful and they destroy tissues by dissolving protein. For example, sulfuric acid is a strong acid and it has ability to hold the

  • Arrhenius Theory Of Acids And Bases

    classified into two different substances. These two substances are acids and bases. The Arrhenius Theory of acids and bases states that acids are substances that dissociate to form charged atoms known as ions. Bases ionize to produce hydroxide ions while acids produce hydrogen ions. HCl is an example of an Arrhenius acid because it dissociate into an H+ ion. The reaction involving NaOH is an example of an Arrhenius base because it is increasing the concentration of (OH-) ions. The reaction which

  • Acid Base Titration Experiment

    1734 Words  | 4 Pages

    Introduction: Acids and bases are everywhere. From things you drink to things you wash your laundry with, that item is probably an acid or a base. An Arrhenius acid is a molecular substance that when reacted with water will produce hydrogen ions(H+) as the only cations. An Arrhenius base is another molecular substance that when reacted with water will produce hydroxide ions((OH-) as the only anions. Acids and bases have different pH ranges so it isn’t hard to differentiate them. The pH of an acid

    The Russian Revolution at the Kronstadt Navel Base Most popular uprisings in recent history have been characterized by a brief period of incredible potential and hope, only to collapse in failure and despair. Even the supposedly 'successful' Russian Revolution of 1917 followed this pattern. Revolutionaries threw off centuries of imperial rule and oppression in order to create a new world of freedom, peace and equality... only to end up with Stalin, purges, gulags, dekulakization - and ultimately

    Neutralisation - How much acid is required to neutralise a base Introduction ============ Neutralisation is the reaction of a base with an acid to form a neutral solution; which contains salt and water. Acid + Base Salt + Water --------------------------- In my experiment I am trying to find out how much acid it takes to neutralise a base to form a neutral solution. I will use one molar of Nitric Acid as the acid and one molar of Ammonium Hydroxide as the base. So this will be a 1:1 ratio. (Molarity = how

  • Acid-Base Titration Lab Report

    Madison Guido Determination of Ka : Titration of Weak Acid Introduction/Theory: The purposed of this experiment is to use a LoggerPro and LabPro to follow the pH changes during an acid-base titration, and ultimately determine the Ka, through calculation, of the weak-acid (acetic acid or vinegar, HC2H3O2) being titrated. Ka can be defined as a constant for a given acid at any temperature. Generally, in water solutions, weak acids react with water to establish equilibrium, for example: HA + H2O
