Knowing Acids or Bases

Postby madisondesilva1c » Fri Jan 18, 2019 3:24 pm

Is there a list somewhere that indicates strong bases and strong acids that we should know in order to properly execute skills on exams? Are there any biological compounds that we are also expected to know the chemical formula for?

There is 7 strong acids: Best to remember them by is the middle elements in group 17. Nitric acid, Sulfuric acid and chloric acids ( with at least 3 oxygen atoms).

HCl, HBr, HI, HNO3, HClO3, HClO4, H2SO4

There is 8 strong bases: Best to remember them is the group 1 elements and the middle elements in group 2.

LiOH, NaOH, KOH, RbOH, CsOH, Ca(OH)2, Sr(OH)2, Ba(OH)2

List of strong acids and bases
this was a list at one of the workshops last quarter.

So as I see here, maybe you can remember that the bases usually contain OH
