  • Acid Bases & Identification Tests
    • Acid:  A chemical substance (typically, a corrosive or sour-tasting liquid) that neutralizes alkalis, dissolves some metals, and turns litmus red.
    • A substance that will neutralise and acid but will not dissolve in water, is called a base.
    • a weak base is a chemical base that does not ionize fully in an aqueous solution.
    • An alkali is any substance that produces   OH- ions in water.
    • A strong acid is an acid that ionizes completely in an aqueous solution by losing one proton
      • Strong acids are completely ionised in water.
        • Weak acids only partly ionise.
    • Neutralisation: A chemical reaction in which an acid and a base interact with the formation of a salt.
      • Neutralisation is exothermic.
    • Equation to show Neutralisation H+  +  OH- ? H2O
