  1. 1. Acids, Bases and Salts 1
  2. 2. Acids Definition: Acids are chemical substances that produces hydrogen ions as the only positively charged ion when dissolved in water  Acids taste sour  pH < 7  Corrosive  Conducts electricity when aqueous  Turns blue litmus paper red 2
  3. 3. Acids: Strong or weak? Strong acid Weak acid   Ionizes completely in water Ionizes partially in water   Produces a lot of H+ ions Produces little H+ ions   All acid molecules form ions Not all acid molecules form ions   Very corrosive Not so corrosive   Mineral acids Organic acids   Strong electrolyte Weak electrolyte   3
  4. 4. Complete Ionisation in SA Cl- H+ Cl H Cl Cl - H H H+ Cl- Cl H Cl - Cl + H H+ – HCl  H + Cl + 4

  14. 14. Salts Definition: A salt is the substance formed when the hydrogen of an acid is partially or totally replaced by a metal 14
  15. 15. Basicity  The number of hydrogen atoms in an acid that can be replaced by a metal is called Basicity  Eg. Hydrochloric acid with 1 hydrogen atom is monobasic  Sulphuric acid with 2 hydrogen atoms is dibasic  Phosphoric acid with 3 hydrogen atoms is tribasic 15

  19. 19. Indicators 19
  20. 20. Power of Hydrogen When pH decreases, the concentration of  hydrogen ions increases. When pH increases, the concentration of  hydrogen ions decreases. pH values lesser than 7, shows that it is acidic.  More hydrogen ions than hydroxide ions. pH values greater than 7 shows that it is  alkaline. More hydroxide ions than hydrogen ions. At pH 7, it is neutral. Hydrogen and hydroxide  ions are in equal concentration. 20
  21. 21. Types of Oxides  Basic oxides  Amphoteric oxides  Acidic oxides  Neutral oxides 21
  22. 22. Basic Oxides Oxides of metals  Mostly insoluble in water – refer to solubility  table Soluble basic oxides will dissolve in water to  form alkalis Sodium oxide dissolves readily in water to for sodium  hydroxide Reacts with acids and undergoes neutralization  reactions Eg. Copper(II) oxide, calcium oxide, magnesium  oxide Does not react with bases  22
  23. 23. Amphoteric Oxides Oxides of metals that react with both acids and  bases Eg. ZnO + 2HCl  ZnCl2 + H2  In the presence of acid, the amphoteric oxide  behaves like a base ZnO + 2NaOH  Na2ZnO2 + H2O  In the presence of alkali, the amphoteric oxide  behaves like an acid Others include aluminium oxide and lead(II)  oxide and lead(IV) oxide 23
  24. 24. Acidic Oxides  Oxides of non-metals  Soluble in water to produce acids  Eg. CO2 + H2O  H2CO3  Acidic oxides reacts with alkalis and undergoes neutralization reactions  Eg. Sulfur dioxide, sulfur trioxide, nitrogen dioxide, phosphorus(V) oxide  Does not react with acids 24
  25. 25. Neutral Oxides  Oxides of non-metals  Insoluble in water  Will not react with acids nor bases  Eg. Water, carbon monoxide, nitrogen monoxide 25
