Day 25 Podia Question

Podia Question

Write a clear, concise explanation in scientifically appropriate language for each of these correct statements.

1. When a polyprotic acid donates a hydrogen ion, the species that remains is usually a much weaker acid than was the original polyprotic acid.

2. When trichloroacetic acid (CCl3COOH) reacts with hydrogen carbonate ion (HCO3) the equilibrium is significantly more product-favored than when acetic acid (CH3COOH) reacts with hydrogen carbonate ion.

3. When a strong base reacts with a weak acid in stoichiometrically equivalent quantity, the pH of the solution is above 7.

Two days before the next whole-class session, this Podia question will become live on Podia, where you can submit your answer.
