Memorize strong and weak acids and bases?

Postby longjump » Wed Dec 05, 2018 6:16 pm

Should we memorize the strong and weak bases and acids for the final, or is this not of high importance?

It would be best to memorize which acids/bases are strong and which ones are weak. This will be important for identifying the pH of salt solutions, and in general it will tell you whether the reaction goes to completion or is at equilibrium. Although we haven't done equilibrium yet, you should be able to distinguish the reactions.

I asked a TA and they said that it would be helpful and we should memorize them

I would say to memorize the seven strong acids and the reasoning why they are strong acids.
