  • Key Facts - Acids, Bases and Buffers
    • An acid is a proton donator
    • A base is a proton acceptor
    • A buffer keeps the pH constant even when you add small amounts of acid or alkali
    • ALWAYS work in moles with buffers by using ......................
    • When dealing with questions concerning pH curves start with what the new substance is being added to! They try to trick you with the way they word it!
    • When concerning buffers, DO NOT but back into concentrations uses n =cv with week acids (Ka's)
    • Use whole equations for Ka with buffers
    • Remember with buffers that the moles of the salt = the moles of the base
