NaOH is the chemical formula for sodium hydroxide. It is also called caustic soda or lye. At room temperature, pure sodium hydroxide is a white, odorless solid. It is an extremely caustic metallic base and an alkaline co... More »

Sodium hydroxide, chemically known as NaOH, is a strong base. A strong base is defined as a chemical compound that can remove a proton (H+) or in other words, deprotonate a molecule of a weak acid in an acid-base reactio... More »

The reaction between NaOH and HClO4 is represented by the equation NaOH + HClO4 -- NaClO4 + H2O. In the equation, the reaction of sodium hydroxide with perchloric acid produces sodium perchlorate and water. More »

The molecular weight of NaOH, or sodium hydroxide, is 39.9971 g/mol. This means that one mole of this substance containing a number of constituent particles equal to Avogadro's constant, weighs 39.9971 grams. More »

The molarity of NaOH shows the concentration of sodium hydroxide in a solution in terms of moles per liter. The molarity of a sodium hydroxide solution can be determined by dividing the amount of sodium hydroxide (in mol... More »

The base dissociation constant, or Kb, of sodium hydroxide, or NaOH, is approximately 1020. NaOH is classified as a strong base, which completely ionizes or dissociates in a solution into Na+ and OH- ions. At equilibrium... More »

At standard temperature and pressure, the density of NaOH, or sodium hydroxide, is 2.13 grams per cubic centimeter. The STP standard assumes a temperature of 32 degrees Fahrenheit and 0.987 standard atmosphere. More »
