Acids and Alkalis

  • Acids are substances which form H+(aq) ions when added to weater.
  • Alkalis are substances which form OH-(aq) ions when added to water.

this is the equation fo3r any neutralisation reactions.

  • acids+ alkali - salt + water

neutralisation in terms of ions looks like this:

  •  H+(aq) + OH-(aq) -H2O(l)

Base= a substance that will neutralise an acid ( includes all alkalis)

Acids and Alkali

  • Acids are substances which form H+(aq) ions when added to weater.They have a PH less than 7
  • Alkalis are substances which form OH- (aq) ions when added to water. They are a base that dissolves in water.

this is the equation for any neutralisation reactions.

  • acids+ alkali - salt + water

neutralisation in terms of ions looks like this:

  • H+(aq) + OH-(aq) -H2O(l)

Base= a substance that will neutralise an acid ( includes all alkalis). It has a PH greater than 7.
