Weak and Strong Acids and Bases

Postby Harmony Becerra » Thu Jan 17, 2019 7:50 pm

How are we supposed to know when a substance is a strong/weak acid/base? Should we just memorize a list online? Or will the question tell us?

Questions will give us the pH or some other measures that will allow us to calculate the pH or pOH of the substance.

You can memorize the strong acids and bases. Strong acids and bases are completely dissociated. If there is a small Kb or Ka value then it is probably a weak acid or base.
