Chemistry: Acids and Bases

These sites focus on acids and bases. Learn the difference between acids and bases and their chemical reactions. There are activities and experiments that help students to learn how to use pH scale and to classify materials as acids, bases, or neutral. There are virtual experiments, interactive games, experimental ideas, animated movies, and quizzes. Includes a link to eThemes Resources on mixtures and solutions.

Student Activity Sheets and the entire chapter can be downloaded and printed. NOTE: This site has a link to discussion boards.
This experiment investigates pH of different mixed solutions.
Order items in a list from low (acidic) to high (basic) pH.
There are experiments on how to measure the pH of substances and how to determine the amount of acid in soil and streams.
Here are esay experiments to test the pH of various water samples.
This page has experiments on classifying solutions as acidic, neutral or alkaline as well as reactions of acids and alkalis. NOTE: Some experiements are appropriate for older students.
These sites provide information about the chemistry of mixtures and solutions. Learn what mixtures and solutions are made of, what their properties are, how to separate components of mixtures, and methods of separation. There are examples of mixtures encountered in daily life, classroom activities, experiments, interactive games, and animations. There is a link to eThemes Resources on Chromatography.
