Acids are covalent compounds with H+ ion connected to a nonmetal anion or polyatomic ion. Bases are ionic compounds with metal cation connected to OH- anion, although can also be N containing covalent compounds.

Intro to Acids and Bases

Concept #1: Intro to Acids

Example #1: Which of the following does not represent the possible structure of an acid?

a) HBr                     b) HIO3                    c) CH4                       d) HOCl 

Concept #2: Characteristics of Acids

Acids have distinct characteristics such as, they ionize when placed in water, have a sour taste, react with metals to form H2 gas, and turn blue litmus paper red.

Example #2: H2SO4 is added to large container of water. How is the solution different from the original water?

Practice: Which of the following compounds would produce the greatest concentration of hydrogen ions when dissolved?

Concept #3: Intro to Bases

Example #3: Which of the following represents the possible structure of a base?

a) C(OH)4                    b) NaCl                       c) KOH                       d) HC2H3O2

Concept #4: Characteristics of Bases

Bases also have some distinct characteristics, they ionize when placed in water, have a bitter taste and slippery to the touch, and turn red litmus paper blue.

Example #4: Which of the following is a characteristic of a strong base?

Practice: Which of the following is true in regards to LiOH?
