Problem Set 1 (Due January 27, 2020 This homework is about reactions of acids, bases, and salts in aqueous solutions. How easily can you solve problems that involve acids and bases? How confident are you in being successful with the homework? 1. How is a Brønsted-Lowry acid defined? How is a Brensted-Lowry base defined? How do these definitions differ from the Arrhenius definition of acids and bases? 2. What is meant by the term amphoteric? Give one chemical equation that illustrates the amphoterie nature of water. 3. What makes an acid a strong acid? Why is HF so much weaker than other hydrogen halides?
4. Give an example of an acidic salt and one chemical equation that illustrates its formation 5. Define Lewis acid and Lewis base. 6. Write the formula for the conjugate acid of each of the following. a. F c. HCIO, b. CsHsN d. CN 7. Explain why HCIO, is a stronger acid than H Se04.
8. Choose the stronger acid and give your reasons. a. HBr or HCI b. HS or H2Se 9. What are basic salts? Give an example of one and where you might find it in the real world. 10. Alcohols are organic compounds that have an -OH group. Are alcohols acids or bases? Give your reasoning for your answer. Now that you have completed this homework, how easily can you solve questions about acids and bases in aqueous solutions? How confident are you in being successful with future homework around this topic or a test question?
