Chapter 14: Acids and Bases

Acids and Bases – an introduction to acids and bases and the scientists who first discovered and described them.

(Main Idea: Acids are identified by their properties.)

Acid-Base Solutions – interactive look at the pH and conductivity of weak and strong acids and bases.

(Main Idea: Arrhrenius acids and bases produce ions in solution.)

Acid-Base Reactions – animated look at the reactions that take place when nitric acid and sodium hydroxide are mixed.

(Main Idea: Neutralization reactions produce water and a salt.)


Bronsted-Lowry Acids and Bases – video explanation of Brønsted-Lowry acids and bases, which are those that are not in a water solution.

(Main Idea: Brønsted-Lowry acids and bases donate or accept protons.)
