Bronsted Acids and Bases

Postby curry 1E » Tue Nov 26, 2019 2:36 pm

Exactly what about the bronsted acids and bases are we expected to know besides naming them?

Someone else can add onto this, but I think it's helpful to know their exact function and role when reacting with other substances. For example, Bronsted acids are proton donors and Bronsted bases are proton acceptors.
Also, it'd probably be helpful to recognize what makes up a strong/weak acid or base as well.

I believe just naming them for now. More comes along in chem 14b I believe Lavelle said

I think knowing when something is a bronsted acid/base versus when its a lewis acid/base is also important.

Always remember that acids are negative and bases are positive. Acids will give protons away and accept electrons (causing the charge to become more negative) while bases will accept protons and give electrons (causing the charge to become more positive).

Know the definitions of the bronzed acids and bases because we just need to know how to distinguish them from the definitions of Arrhenius or Lewis. We will learn more about them in 14b.

Understand that bronsted acids are molecules that donate an H+ ion and bronsted bases are those that receive an H+ ion.
