8.3.1 Distinguish between strong and weak acids and bases IB Chemistry SL

8.3.1 Distinguish between strong and weak acids and bases in terms of the extent of dissociation, reaction with water and electrical conductivity."Strong" in this context means that the acid (or base) is completely dissociated when added to water. This gives high electrical conductivity since there are lots of free moving charged particles. Strong acids (and bases) react faster than weak ones since the strong have much higher concentrations of ions. Strong acids/bases tend to be more dangerous than weak ones."Weak" means partially dissociated -- a weak acid will only release very few protons into solution and a weak base only releases very few hydroxide ions.Dr Atkinson strongly hopes to be awakened from his Inception dream sometime this weak.
