Mr. Smiley taught the frog that he caught in the story on how to jump higher, but if someone else were to…

    more extensive and intensive tests should be done to confirm the results. When looking at the Paste pH and Electrical Conductivity Tests, we are looking for an acidic environment and an environment with a high concentration of salt. Specifically, if our site sample has a pH of less than 4, then that indicates that the sample is acidic. If our site sample has an electrical conductivity greater than 2000 μSiemens per centimeters, then that indicates that the sample has a high level of soluble…

    has been removed. Washes operate on the idea that adding base and acid to a mixture will draw out the acidic and basic substances contained in that mixture. Acids are defined by their need to donate a proton. Bases are defined by their need to take in a proton. Therefore, adding a strong acid to a mixture would cause the base in the mixture to want to take the protons from the acid8. Similarly, adding a strong base to a mixture would cause the acid in the mixture to want to donate its proton8.…

    Since acetic acid is considered a weak acid (strong within the scale of weak acids), there is a range at which the acetic acid and acetate will form a stable buffer.

Finding charge on a protonated amine: The pKa value given for the amino group on any amino acid specifically refers to the equilibrium between the…
