# Acids and Bases 2

 How do you predict acid/base equilibria Check whether the reactants or the products has the stronger acid/stronger base combination. Position of equilibrium will be to the opposite of the stronger acids/stronger base. (I.e. draw the longer arrow to opposite side of stronger acid/stronger base) What is the equilibrium constant Keq. When you see the equation, acetate is [A-] Given the pKa, how do you find Ka - 10 - pKa- pKa is usually a number like 4.75. To find Ka, do this: 10-4.75 A strong acid and a strong base react to give a salt and water A strong acid and a weak base react to give An acidic salt A weak acid and a strong base react to give a salt and water Strong acids react with certain metals to give A salt and H2 Strong bases react with weak acids to give Basic salt When do you see a water and a basic sol'n when a strong acid reacts with a metal oxide What happens when a strong acid reacts with a carbonate/bicarbonate produces carbonic acid (which decomposes into CO2 and H20) Small pKa = Strong Acid What is the conjugate base of HCl Cl- A bronsted acid must have a _____ to give up Hydrogen Know how to work the Henderson-Hasselbalch Equation Okay AuthorYellow2 ID122604 Card SetAcids and Bases 2 DescriptionAcids and Bases 2 Updated2011-12-11T04:42:42Z Show Answers
