Classroom Resources: Acids & Bases
1 – 3 of 3 Classroom Resources
pH, Net Ionic Equation, Indicators, Strong vs Weak, Salts | High School
In this lab, students will observe the hydrolysis of several salt samples. They will first predict which solutions are acidic, basic or neutral, and then discover the pH of each through the use of indicators. Students will share and compile their experimental results, as well as have an opportunity to determine the net-ionic equations for each reaction.
pH, Strong vs Weak, Equilibrium Constants, Salts | High School
In this lesson students will write dissociation reactions to make connections between conjugate acid-base pairs. They will use beaker diagrams in a cooperative group activity to better understand why the pH calculation for a weak acid/base is not the same for a strong acid/base. Finally, students will apply these concepts in a lab in which they will identify several unknown, clear, colorless solutions using factors such as pH, conductivity and reactivity. The activities in this lesson can be used in sequence or as standalone activities.
Chemical Change, pH, Acid & Base Theories, Strong vs Weak, Mixture, Salts, Ions, Conductivity | Middle School
In this lesson, students will test different flavors of Gatorade and other liquids to investigate acids and bases. This will take several days unless students already know about acids and bases.
