# 14.3 Relative strengths of acids and bases  (Page 12/18)

 Page 12 / 18

Are the concentrations of hydronium ion and hydroxide ion in a solution of an acid or a base in water directly proportional or inversely proportional? Explain your answer.

What two common assumptions can simplify calculation of equilibrium concentrations in a solution of a weak acid?

1. Assume that the change in initial concentration of the acid as the equilibrium is established can be neglected, so this concentration can be assumed constant and equal to the initial value of the total acid concentration. 2. Assume we can neglect the contribution of water to the equilibrium concentration of H 3 O + .

What two common assumptions can simplify calculation of equilibrium concentrations in a solution of a weak base?

Which of the following will increase the percent of NH 3 that is converted to the ammonium ion in water (Hint: Use LeChâtelier’s principle.)?

(c) addition of NH 4 Cl

Which of the following will increase the percent of HF that is converted to the fluoride ion in water?

What is the effect on the concentrations of ${\text{NO}}_{2}{}^{\text{−}},$ HNO 2 , and OH when the following are added to a solution of KNO 2 in water:

(a) HCl

(b) HNO 2

(c) NaOH

(d) NaCl

(e) KNO

The equation for the equilibrium is:
${\text{NO}}_{2}{}^{\text{−}}\left(aq\right)+{\text{H}}_{2}\text{O}\left(l\right)\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}⇌\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}{\text{HNO}}_{2}\left(aq\right)+{\text{OH}}^{\text{−}}\left(aq\right)$

(a) Adding HCl will add H 3 O + ions, which will then react with the OH ions, lowering their concentration. The equilibrium will shift to the right, increasing the concentration of HNO 2 , and decreasing the concentration of ${\text{NO}}_{2}{}^{\text{−}}$ ions. (b) Adding HNO 2 increases the concentration of HNO 2 and shifts the equilibrium to the left, increasing the concentration of ${\text{NO}}_{2}{}^{\text{−}}$ ions and decreasing the concentration of OH ions. (c) Adding NaOH adds OH ions, which shifts the equilibrium to the left, increasing the concentration of ${\text{NO}}_{2}{}^{\text{−}}$ ions and decreasing the concentrations of HNO 2 . (d) Adding NaCl has no effect on the concentrations of the ions. (e) Adding KNO 2 adds ${\text{NO}}_{2}{}^{\text{−}}$ ions and shifts the equilibrium to the right, increasing the HNO 2 and OH ion concentrations.

What is the effect on the concentration of hydrofluoric acid, hydronium ion, and fluoride ion when the following are added to separate solutions of hydrofluoric acid?

(a) HCl

(b) KF

(c) NaCl

(d) KOH

(e) HF

The equation for the equilibrium is:
$\text{HF}\left(aq\right)+{\text{H}}_{2}\text{O}\left(l\right)\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}⇌\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}{\text{H}}_{3}{\text{O}}^{\text{+}}\left(aq\right)+{\text{F}}^{\text{−}}\left(aq\right)$

Why is the hydronium ion concentration in a solution that is 0.10 M in HCl and 0.10 M in HCOOH determined by the concentration of HCl?

This is a case in which the solution contains a mixture of acids of different ionization strengths. In solution, the HCO 2 H exists primarily as HCO 2 H molecules because the ionization of the weak acid is suppressed by the strong acid. Therefore, the HCO 2 H contributes a negligible amount of hydronium ions to the solution. The stronger acid, HCl, is the dominant producer of hydronium ions because it is completely ionized. In such a solution, the stronger acid determines the concentration of hydronium ions, and the ionization of the weaker acid is fixed by the [H 3 O + ] produced by the stronger acid.

what does each group on the periodic table stand for
what's lanthanide series
lanthanide series are element in the 4f block from 57 to 70
Ummulkhairi
lanthanide series consist of F block element in the first series in the end of the periodic table..they are placed separately in the periodic table.because they possess different properties than rest of the elements!

how do you know if a periodic table is complete or not
just find out the alkali metals,alkaline earth metals,the halogens, noble gases and transition metals.
