About 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.
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?
