Common weak acids include formic, acetic, hydrofluoric, hydrocyanic, citric and trichloroacetic acids. Some weak bases include ammonia, trimethyl ammonia, pyridine, sodium bicarbonate and ammonium hydroxide. Weak acids a... More »

Polar solvents include oxygen and hydrogen, but there are many others. When polar solvents have a relative static permittivity higher than 15, they can then be divided into aprotic and protic polar solvents. More » Science Chemistry Chem Lab

A pH scale chart includes a list of all the possible values along the pH scale and whether each value is acidic, neutral or basic. Each pH value has a color assignment that corresponds to its color in a pH indicator test... More »

Ammonia, ammonium hydroxide and pyridine are examples of weak chemical bases. A weak base can be identified by the fact that it only partially ionizes when mixed with a water-based solution. The anions of weak acids, whi... More »

Strong acids and weak acids are defined by their ability to ionize. Strong acids usually ionize 100 percent in a solution, while a weak acid does not. For example, a strong acid placed in water immediately donates a hydr... More »

According to Anne Helmenstine, Ph.D of About: Chemistry, bases are the chemical opposite of acids. Bases react with acids to form salts and water. More »

One of the main differences between acids and bases is that acids have a pH that is less than 7 and bases have a pH that is greater than 7. When dissolved in water, acids are substances that will cause the concentration ... More »
