The size of these particles is very small compared to the distance between the particles. These… Continue Reading “IDEAL GAS LAWS”

ACIDS AND BASES


See on Scoop.it – PHYSICAL SCIENCES BREAK 1.0 Definition 1: Acids A Bronsted-Lowry acid is a substance that gives away protons (hydrogen cations H+), and is therefore called aproton donor.   Definition 2: Bases A Bronsted-Lowry base is a substance that takes up protons (hydrogen cations H+), and is therefore called aproton… Continue Reading “ACIDS AND BASES”
