Acid Base Equilibria

Postby Helen Struble 2F » Sun Jan 19, 2020 7:41 pm

How are acid base calculations different than regular equilibria calculations? Or is it all the same concepts just applied in one specific scenario?

Equilibrium concepts can be applied to many parts of chemistry. Acid base is an important one among many applications.

The examples we have covered in lectures are an application of the rules we have learned for calculating k, but for different situations such as to acids and bases.

I don't particularly understand the distinction between the K calculated through pressure of a gas and K from concentration. How are they different, and can they be converted into each other in any case?

In response to Eesha, it’s the same process to calculate K, but pressure and concentration use different units so they wouldn’t be interchangeable.

Finding K in terms of pressure or concentrations are different because of the units and on a question it should be clear which one we should find in terms of what units they are looking for.
