Substance
(p. 592) - Matter that has the same composition and properties throughout.
Heterogeneous Mixture
(p. 593) - Type of mixture where the substances are not evenly mixed.
Homogeneous Mixture
(p. 594) - Type of mixture where two or more substances are evenly mixed on a molecular level but are not bonded together.
Solution
(p. 594) - Homogeneous mixture whose elements and/or compounds are evenly mixed at the molecular level but are not bonded together.
Solute
(p. 594) - substance that dissolves and seems to disappear into another substance.
Solvent
(p. 594) - Substance that dissolves the solute.
Precipitate
(p. 594) - solid that comes back out of its solution because of a chemical reaction or physical change.
Aqueous
(p. 598) - solution in which water is the solvent.
Solubility
(p. 601) - measure of how much solute can be dissolved in certain amount of solvent.
Saturated
(p. 602) - describes a solution that holds the total amount of solute that it can hold under given conditions.
Concentration
(p. 603) - describes how much solute is present in a solution compared to the amount of solvent.
Acid
(p. 606) - Substance that releases H+ ions and produces hydroxide ions when dissolved in water.
Hydronium ions
(p. 606) - hydrogen ion combines with a water molecule to form a hydronium ion, H3O+.
Base
(p. 609) - substance that accepts H+ ions and produces hydroxide ions when dissolved in water.
pH
(p. 610) - Measure of how acidic or basic a solution is, ranging on a scale from 0 - 14.
Indicator
(p. 612) - Compound that changes color at different pH values when it reacts with acidic or basic solutions.
Neutralization
(p. 612) - Reaction in which an acid reacts with a base and forms water and a salt.
