Chemistry Music Video 25: Acids And Bases

This song differentiates between Arrhenius Acids and Bases and describes titration. All music and lyrics copyright 2005 by Mark Rosengarten. All rights reserved. Lyrics: Acids and bases, in life you have a place Acids have a hydrogen, hydroxide for a base Acids give off H+ when in water they are stirred Forming H3O+, hydroniums the word The more hydroniums there are, the lower pH gets All because the silly acid had to go get wet! Reactive metals like Ca and Fe oxidize When reacted with an acid they can really shrink in size Gaseous hydrogen is formed as well as salt in fact But metals like Au, Ag and Cu wont react! Acids and bases, in life you have a place Acids have a hydrogen, hydroxide for a base Bases yield hydroxide, OH- how we write When dissolved in water, and disappear from sight The more hydroxide ions, the higher pH slopes The more slippery it feels as it turns your skin to soap! Fats are hydrolyzed by bases, turns them into soap Which can be fashioned into bars or dangled from a rope Bases form when active metals H2O are placed Sodium forms sodium hydroxide, a strong base! Acids and bases, in life you have a place Acids have a hydrogen, hydroxide for a base Put the two together and you get some real neat stuff Its called neutralization, I can never get enough It makes water molecules and salt with no regrets Titrations what you call it when you mix them with burets MaVa = MbVb can be used to calculate Concentrations of an acid or a base when you titrate Just remember that Ma or Mb will get multiplied By the number of each ion by which theyre identified! Acids and bases, in life you have a place Acids have a hydrogen, hydroxide for a base
