4. Acid/Base Definitions

Because of the prevalence and importance of acids, they have been used and studied for hundreds of years. Over time, the definitions of acid and base have been refined

Students learn to:
  • gather and process information from secondary sources to trace developments in understanding and describing acid/base reactions
  • choose equipment and perform a first-hand investigation to identify the pH of a range of salt solutions
  • perform a first-hand investigation to determine the concentration of a domestic acidic substance using computer-based technologies
