Acids are a group of substances with specific properties. Bases can be considered to be the chemical opposites of acids.
Most acids have observable characteristic chemical reactions with reactive metals, metal oxides, metal hydroxides, hydrogen carbonates and carbonates.
Salt and water are produced in exothermic neutralization reactions.
Applications and skills
Balancing chemical equations for the reaction of acids.
Identification of the acid and base needed to make different salts.
Candidates should have experience of acid-base titrations with different indicators.
