Polyprotics on Final

Postby Hannah Faris 1C » Sat Dec 08, 2018 8:41 pm

Hey, how much do we need to know about polyprotics for the final? There are no assigned homework questions for the section so I don't have a good gauge of what we should know.

Thanks!!

Just know polyprotics can dissociate more than once. For example, H2S04, which is a strong acid, dissociates to H+ and HSO4-. However, HSO4- could then dissociate to SO4^2- and H+. Also, know that the second dissociation is a lot harder than the first one, meaning that the second acid is a weaker acid compared to the first acid.

How would you be able to tell if something is a polyprotic acid/base?

If it has more than h+ proton that can dissasociate.
