All Chapters Video 2.8 Acid-Base Review Chapter QuizChapter Outline Question? Ask Dr. Mike! Lesson Summary How to Sort Acids and Bases by Strength 1. Charge – Positively charged compounds are typically more acidic, negatively charged compounds are typically more basic. 2. Atom – The more electronegative/larger the atom with a negative charge, the more acidic the hydrogen is. 3. Resonance – The more resonance-stabilized the conjugate base, the stronger the acid. 4. Dipole Induction – Electron withdrawing groups increase acidity, electron donating groups decrease acidity. 5. Orbitals – The more s-character an atom has, the more electronegative it is, and the more acidic hydrogen’s bonded to it will be. i.e. sp > sp2 > sp3 Lesson 2.8 Acid-Base Review 2.1 Acid-Base Definitions 2.1 Quiz Video Solution 2.2 Conjugate Base-Acid Relationship and pH Scale 2.2 Quiz Video Solution 2.3 Ranking Acids and Bases with CARDIO (Charge) 2.3 Quiz Video Solution 2.4 Ranking Acids and Bases with CARDIO (Atom) 2.4 Quiz Video Solution 2.5 Ranking Acids and Bases with CARDIO (Resonance) 2.5 Quiz Video Solution 2.6 Ranking Acids and Bases with CARDIO (Dipole Induction) 2.6 Quiz Video Solution 2.7 Ranking Acids and Bases with CARDIO (Orbitals) 2.7 Quiz Video Solution 2.8 Acid and Base Review 2.8 Quiz Video Solution Instructor Dr. Mike Christiansen Dr. Christiansen is a chemistry professor at Utah State University and has a PhD in organic chemistry.
