VOCABULARY ​ Acid - molecule or compound which donates an H when dissolved in water, low on pH scale A​queous - dissolved in water − ​ Base - molecule or compound which donates an OH when dissolved in water, high on pH scale ​ Ionic Salt - neutral compound which results from the neutralization of an acid and a base ​ Insoluble - does not dissolve in water Oxidat​ion Number - the charge an atom/molecule in a compound would have if it the electrons (which it shares with other molecules in the compound) were to be transferred to it completely ​ Oxidize - to lose electrons O​xidizing Agent - molecule which helps in oxidation process and thus is itself reduced (gains electrons) ​ Precipitate - when molecules in an aqueous solution form a solid ​ Reduce - to gain electrons ​ Reducing Agent - molecule which helps in reduction process and thus is itself oxidized (loses electrons) ​ Soluble - dissolves in water ​ Spectator Ions - ions which are involved in a chemical reaction, but do not themselves undergo chemical change ______________________________________________ REACTIONS TYPES OF REACTIONS: 1) Precipitation reaction​: When two soluble ionic compounds mix to form a new insoluble ionic compound ​ -
