Homework Help: 2 Chemistry Grade 11 Questions

  1. Apr 30, 2005 #1
    I need help on these two questions.

    1.Describe the differences between the dissociation of an acid (or base) in water and the ionization of an acid (or base) in water.

    2. A student working in a chemistry laboratory is given 2 bottles, each filled with 1.00L of clear and colourless liquid. The first bottle is labeled "Hydrochloric Acid - 2mol/L" and the other just simply says "Calcium Hydroxide" Describe an experiment that this student can conduct in order to determine the exact concentration in mol/L of calcium hydroxide.

    I ask these questions because I have no idea what to do. Please help.

    Thank You.

    Well from what i remember off my Freshman Chemistry. The Theory of Acid-Bases by Arrhenius will help to answer your first question.

    The first pertains to a reaction of the acid/base with water (Ka and Kb), the second refers to water's role in stabilizing the transition states and final ionic charges.

    you could just set up an acid-base titration experiment.

    My teacher has done an acid-base titration experiment during a class but I don't know how it works. Could someone explain it to me?
