Chemistry Concept Review

  1. What does pKa measure?
    how acidic (or not) a given hydrogen atom in a molecule is.
  2. What does pH measure?
    how acidic a solution is.
  3. State the Bronsted Lowry Theory.
    An acid donates a proton and the base accepts it. The ion or molecule remaining after the acid has lost a proton is known as that acid's conjugate base, and the species created when the base accepts the proton is known as the conjugate acid.
  4. What is a Lewis acid?
    a compound or ionic species that can accept an electron pair from a donor compound.
