Why does aqueous matter and are we going to need to know it for the final exam?

Some molecules like HCl remain "intact" in other states liek gas phase, but in water (aqueous), they dissociate. It's an important distinction to keep track of.

Aqueous molecules disassociate in water. Also, you should only use the concentrations of aqueous compounds when calculating the Ka or Kb.

In addition, it's useful to know that the Arrhenius definition of acids/bases surround the idea that acids ionize in aqueous solutions to produce H+ ions while bases produce OH- ions
