About the Advanced Acids and Bases Virtual Lab Simulation

The concept of strong acids may sound frightening, but did you know that some weak acids can actually be more dangerous than their stronger counterparts? In the Advanced Acids and Bases simulation, you will learn all about the characteristics of weak and strong acids and bases, which will not only help you get a better understanding of chemistry, but also let you help out the lake ranger, Victoria, in the process.

Calculating pH

Victoria is bewildered by the condition of the lake she is monitoring, as all the animals living in the lake have suddenly disappeared. Your first mission in the Advanced Acids and Bases lab is therefore to take water samples of the lake and analyze their pH in the lab. The goal is to try to identify connections between the measured pH and the lake conditions.

Illustrating weak acids and bases

You’ll soon discover that the water samples have different pH levels. Through two molecular animations, you will see how acids and bases get their ‘weak’ and ‘strong’ labels and learn how the acid dissociation constant (Ka) is used to define the strength of acids.

Mixing acids and bases

By applying the concept of neutralization, you can create different types of salt. This will come in handy for solving real-life issues, such as environmental hazards.

Will you be able to connect all the concepts you learned to help out Victoria and save her lake?

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

I'm using Labster as part of my course. Do I need to buy a subscription?

If you are enrolled in a class and instructed by your teacher to use Labster, please make sure you use the sign-up information that has been provided by your teacher. Otherwise, your they will not be able to follow your progress and achievements, and you may need to purchase a license twice.

How many simulations will I get access to?

You will get unlimited access to all our simulations. We release new simulations nearly every month, and you can always see an overview of all our simulations in our simulation catalog.

When will my account renew?

Your subscription will renew automatically each month after the free trial is over, unless you have made a single simulation purchase.

How can I cancel my subscription?

If you would like to unsubscribe, please use this form. An automated confirmation email will be sent out to you in the next few minutes. Click the confirmation link contained in the email in order to finalize the termination of your subscription.
