a substance that dissolves in water to give a nonconducting or very poorly conducting solution
a solution that conducts electricity poorly because only a fraction of the solute exists as ions
the formulas of the compounds are written as though all species existed as molecules or whole units
complete ionic equation
a chemical equation in which strong electrolytes (such as soluble ionic compounds) are written as separate ions in the solution
(metathesis) a reaction between compounds that, when written as a molecular equation appears to involve the exchange of parts between two reactants
a dye used to distinguish between an acidic or basic solution by means of color change
(oxidation state) the actual charge of the atom if it exists as a mono-atomic ion or a hypothetical charge assigned to the atom in the substance by simple rules
reaction in which electrons are transferred between species or in which atoms change oxidation numbers
An equation that describes either the loss or the gain of electrons. Two half reactions combine to form a chemical reaction
any process in which electrons are added to an atom or ion (as by removing oxygen or adding hydrogen
a chemical change in which two or more substances react to form a single new substance
a reaction in which a single compound breaks down to form two or more simpler substances
(single replacement) a reaction in which one element replaces a similar element in a compound
a chemical reaction that occurs when a substance reacts with oxygen, releasing energy in the form of heat and light
molar concentration (molarity)
the moles of solute dissolved in one liter of solution. (M)
M= moles of solute/liters of solution
