Consider two separate aqueous solutions: one of a weak acid HA and one of HCl. Assuming you started with 10 molecules of each: a. Draw a picture of what each solution looks like at equilibrium. b. What are the major species in each beaker? c. From your pictures, calculate the Ka values of each acid. d. Order the following from the strongest to the weakest base: H2O, A, Cl. Explain your order.
Chapter 6 Thermochemistry cont Specific Heat Measure of a substances intrinsic ability to absorb heat Specific heat capacity- the amount of hear energy required to raise the temperature of 1 gram of a substance by 1 degree Celsius Molar hear capacity- the amount of heat energy required to raise the temperature of 1 mole of a substance by 1 degree Celsius Specific Heat of Water Water can absorb a lot of heat energy without a large increase in its temperature due to its high specific heat capacity The large amount of water absorbing heat from the air keeps beaches cool in summer Heat Transfer Low to high, stops when the temperatures are equal Heat lost by hot equa
