Acids and Bases

Get Started Now

Join Marie in the Acids and Bases Simulation and explore the nature and concepts of these important chemical compounds. Measure the pH of chemical solutions, and use your acquired knowledge to evaluate mixtures of acids and base.

About the Acids and Bases Virtual Simulation Lab

Have you ever consumed an acid or a base? Yes you have! Acids and bases are found all around us, in the food we eat, the beverages we drink, many of the everyday household products at home and even inside us! In this virtual simulation, you will learn the fundamentals of acids and bases and go through some of the ways they can be characterized and used in the lab.

Acidic life

How do acidic or alkaline foods affect the pH of our blood, and what does this even mean? Together with your lab assistant Marie, you will explore different concepts of acids and bases, and investigate how alkaline foods can also contain acids. You will measure the pH of solutions, and dive into these to experience what’s happening at a molecular level.

Salty mixtures

In order to determine what reactions occur when you mix acids and bases of different strengths, you will have the freedom to mix solutions of these and interpret the resulting salt reaction products. And don’t worry if you make mistakes – in this virtual lab, you can just reset and start over! On-the-go quizzes will make sure you are up to speed, and you can always dive into the Theory Pages for more in-depth explanations.

Corrosive, yet everyday chemicals

Acids and bases can be corrosive and very dangerous to handle. But they also play a fundamental role in all living things, in nature, and in the chemical industry.

Will you be able to to measure the acidity of alkaline foods?

Techniques In Lab

  • pH measurement

Learning Objectives

At the end of this simulation, you will be able to…

  • Give examples of acids and bases from everyday life
  • Define pH and identify acids and bases using the pH scale
  • Apply the the Bronsted-Lowry definition of acids and bases to chemical compounds
  • Describe the amphoteric and self-ionization capacity of water
  • Calculate the pH of a strong acid and base in solution
  • Assess whether a neutralization reaction will occur
  • Evaluate the outcome of simple acid-base reactions
