This powerpoint includes Hydrolysis of salts, and Buffers.
AP Chemistry Standards:
Big Idea 3: Changes in matter involve the rearrangement and/or reorganization of atoms and/or the transfer of electrons.
Big Idea 6: Any bond or intermolecular attraction that can be formed can be broken. These two processes are in a dynamic competition, sensitive to initial conditions and external perturbations.
Essential Question: How are the concepts in Acid/Base Chemistry used in the laboratory?
Teaches students the following:
Describe an indicator as an equilibrium system
Perform and interpret calculations involving the pH in a solution and Ka for an indicator
Describe the hydrolysis of ions in salt solutions
Analyze the extent of hydrolysis in salt solutions
Describe buffers as equilibrium systems
