Everyday Uses of Acids and Alkalis

Added by Dr. Phil Brown on Dec 15, 2008

The emphasis of this activity is on (i) the application of neutralisation reactions without requiring any chemical equation knowledge and (ii) the use of hazard warning symbols related to the 'weak' and 'strong' concepts.

This item teaches:

  • about examples of strong acids
  • the applications of neutralisation reactions
  • about examples of weak bases
  • about acid base neutralisation reactions
  • about examples of weak acids
  • about examples of strong bases



  • Basic revision of acid-alkali neutralisation and simple use of indicators
  • How to apply this knowledge to everyday chemistry including hazards and the weak/strong concept



This item is not part of any lists.
