This is part of the HSC Chemistry course under the topic of Properties of Acids and Bases.
In this post, we explore the changes in definitions and models of an acid and base overtime to explain the limitations of each model, including but not limited to:
- Arrhenius’ theory
- Brønsted–Lowry theory
History of Acids
A video covering the history of the definition of acids and bases and the models used.
A Khan Academy video explaining the Arrhenius definition of acids and bases, covering his theory and the limitations of the model.
A Khan Academy video explaining the Bronsted-Lowry definition of acids and bases, covering their theory and the limitations of the model.
A video covering conjugate acid-base pairs, explaining and showing worked examples of Arrhenius’, Bronsted-Lowry’s and Lewis’ definitions and theories.
