Identifying Acids and Bases

Being able to readily identify a species with regards to its acid/base behavior is a very useful skill. This page provides basic drill and practice in this area. Though most of the species should be easily recognized, feel free to use whatever reference materials you wish. Ultimately the goal is to be able to run through the drills without the need of such aids.

  • When you press "New Species", a formula will appear to the right of the table.
  • Click on the appropriate bubble.
  • Since the goal of this page is accuracy, you only get one attempt per compound. If you misidentify the species, the answer will appear and you will no longer be able to submit an answer to that question.
  • Click on "Explain Answer" for an explanation regarding the selected species
