Common Acids and Bases

Postby Natalie Hunt 1E » Fri Dec 02, 2016 7:43 pm

On page 164 in the course reader, there is a table of common monoprotic acids, common weak bases, and common polyprotic acids. I knew that we should probably know the name and formula but do we need to know the Ka and Kb values of these acids and bases or is that just for reference?

The Ka and Kb values are going to be given in the problem when you solve it so we don't need to know them. We won't need to know any of them offhand.

But we do need to know that Kw = 10^-14.
