This is part of the HSC Chemistry course under the topic of Using Brønsted–Lowry Theory. In this post, we write ionic equations to represent the dissociation of acids and bases in water, conjugate acid/base pairs in solution and amphiprotic nature of some salts, for example:
- Sodium hydrogen carbonate
- Potassium dihydrogen phosphate
How to Identify Conjugate Acid-Base Pairs
The identification of conjugate acid and base pairs in the dissociation of acids and bases in water, by understanding and using Bronsted-Lowry’s theory of acid donor and acid acceptor.
Acid Dissociation Examples
A video on the acid dissociation in aqueous solutions and the properties and characteristics of water, as a result of its amphiprotic nature (hydroxide ion and hydronium ion).
A video explaining the definition and listing examples of amphiprotic substances, as a result of the dissociation of acid and bases in water.
An explanation of the sodium hydrogen carbonate salt and its amphiprotic nature when dissociated in water.
