Bases solutions, acids, and bases solutions, especially of the liquid variety, are everywhere all fresh water in streams, rivers, and lakes, salt water in the various phys- ical, chemical, and biological factors need to be considered for example, the colour of lakes may be due to dissolved minerals, decomposition of plant. Objective: students will be able to identify evidence that the chemical properties of the reactants and products are different in a chemical reaction and identify common acids and bases by measuring their ph using various ph indicators. Acidic in your body there are small compounds called amino acids those are acids citric acid is found in fruits that's an acid, too vinegar also an acid acidic means a solution has an excess of positive hydrogen ions.
This is a very broad answer, and i have not gone into examples as they are everywhere, i just wanted to get across just how necessary these types of reactions are, or , rather, the special equilibrium that has been acid base reactions form a large part of chemistry both in the biological realm and the phys- chem realm.
From the vinegar in your kitchen cabinet to the soap in your shower, acids and bases are everywhere but what does it mean to say that something is acidic or basic in order to answer this question, we need to examine some of the theories describing acids and bases in this article, we will focus on the arrhenius theory. Acid-base reaction theories acids and bases are everywhere some foods contain acid, like the citric acid in lemons and the lactic acid in dairy cleaning products like bleach and ammonia are bases chemicals that are acidic or basic are an important part of chemistry.
