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 »

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 »

Acetic acid is a weak electrolyte that is categorized as a weak acid. Acetic acid is a weak electrolyte because it only ionizes partially. In a solution, the ions of a weak acid tend to recombine to form the acid, unlike... 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 »

Sodium acid pyrosphosphate is a water-soluble chemical used in the food industry to prevent rapid changes in the acidity of a solution when other acids or bases are added. Also known as disodium pyrophosphate, it is used... More »

Pure distilled water has a pH of 7. The pH scale ranges from 0 to 14, with pH levels less than 7 considered acids and pH levels over 7 considered bases. A pH level of 7 is neutral. More »
