which are strong bases?

binary acid

an acid that contains only 2 different elements


an acid that is a compound of hydrogen, oxygen, and a 3rd element (usually a nonmetal)

Arrhenius acid

a chemical compound that increases the concentration of hydrogen ions (H+) in aq. solution

Arrhenius base

a substance that increases the concentration of hydroxide ions (OH-) in aq. solution

strong acid

an acid that ionizes completely in aq. solution

weak acid

compounds whose colors are sensitive to pH

transition interval

the pH range over which an indicator changes color

end point

the point in a titration at which an indicator changes color

standard solution

solution of known concentration

primary solution

a highly purified solid compound used to check the concentration of the known solution
