Will we have to know about polyprotic acids for the test this week?

No we don't. Dr. Lavelle said that polyprotic acids required multiple steps for each time the acid donates a proton.

It might be good to know what polyprotic acids are for the future but I don't think they are something to worry about for this test.

I wouldn't stress too much about this on the test but we will probably have to know it at some point

We won't need to know about it on Test 1.

But what about the homework questions from 6E (1 and 3)?? Those dealt with polyprotic acids. If someone could explain them to me, that'd be really helpful!

I believe no, but the idea of a polyprotic acid is that it can donate more than one hydrogen atom in the equilibrium reaction (like 2+, 3+, etc.) and therefore will have different ionization levels and multiple Ka values.,
