Gen Chem 2 Notes:   Hydrohalic acids are strong.   Oxoacids are strong if: O>(OH)+2.  ­ # of O’s are greater than or equal to # of OH’s +2.   Oxoacids are weak if O=(OH) or O=(OH)+1  HF is a weak acid. Organic acids like –COOH are weak too.   An acid is weak if O’s are not bound to O’s or halogens (H2S, or HCN).   Bases are strong if they feature metals from group 1 or 2.   Ammonia and water are weak bases. Amines are weak bases too.   Kb is the equilibrium constant in relation to bases.  pH= ­log(hydronium ions)  pOH= ­log(hydroxide ions)  pKa= ­logKa  pKw= pH + pOH   pKa is the measure of the strength of acid’s dissociation.   We must know how to calculate pH from the molarity of the given solution or compound.  Bronsted Lowry Acids:  ­An acid that donates an H+.   Bronsted Lowry Base: A base is an H+ acceptor.  ­ Must contain a lone pair of electrons for the H+ to bond at.  ­ Amines, ammonia, and fluorine are examples.   These acid base reactions form conjugate acids and bases:  ­ An example of this process is above. In a conjugate acid an extra H+ is  present than before, and in conjugate bases one less H+ is present.   The net direction of acid basic reactions depend on the strength of acids and bases.  ­ If a Strong acid is a reactant and a weak acid is a product, then the  products are favored.   High Ka = strong acid.   % dissociation = [HA dissolved]/[HA initial]   Polyprotic acids: Acids with more than one ionizable proton.  ­The dissociation of the first proton is easier than that of the second, which is similarly  easier than that of the third proton.  ­ Examples of polyprotic acids are H2SO4, and H3PO4.  ­ All strong polyprotic acids become weak when they lose their first H+.   Bronsted Lowry Base: A species that accepts H+’s.  ­To accept an H+, as discussed before, a long pair must be present.  ­ Generally, a Base + H2O = (BH+) + (OH­)
