Re: pH to salt solution

Given the molarity and volume of the basic solution, you find the concentration of OH- ions. With that information, you can find the pOH and subtract that from 14, and you will have the pH. Hope this basic skeleton of how to solve it helps. Basically find out how many moles of the molecule there is ...

Re: What are salts...

Salts are basically just ionic compounds such as NaCl. They raise or lower pH by ionizing in solution and either creating more hydronium or hydroxide ions. An example of an acidic salt would be NH4Cl. In solution, the NH4 would donate its H proton to H20 creating H30+. more acidic!

Re: Strong acid

It is a strong acid because it fully ionizes and dissociates in water. That means there are more hydronium ions in solution making it more acidic.

NaOH is a strong base because it fully dissociates in water. That means there are more OH- ions floating in solution making it more basic.

Re: Question from textbook

First, use the 2.111g Na2CO3 and the 250.0mL and find the molarity. I got .07980mol/L. For part a, take the 2.15mmol Na+ ion and convert into moles. There are two Na+ ion per Na2CO3 molecule, so using dimensional analysis you find out how many moles of Na2CO3 you need. Using the molarity we found, w...

Re: Atomic Radius

What Ana said above is correct. Adding another electron to the outer shell would increase the electron to electron repulsion, thus making the shell and atomic radius increase ever so slightly.

Re: Energy Release in Electron Affinity

The way I'd rationalize this is knowing that electron affinity, or the energy being released after an electron is added to a neutral atom, is opposite to ionization energy. It takes energy to be put in to break the bonds and release an electron from an atom, so it would only make sense that energy w...

Re: Bond length Correlation

I think there is a relationship between the two because for a bond length to be shorter, there needs to be more bonded electrons between the two. The energy is bond will be higher with more bonded electrons because it will take more energy to break the bond since the bond is shorter and stronger.
