4.1 General Properties of Aqueous Solutions

Chapter 3 provided us with the tools necessary to balance chemical reactions and use stoichiometry to calculate the amount of reactants and products that are consumed or produced in a chemical reaction.

You will use these same concepts from Chapter 3 as we will investigate the properties and the reactions that take place in solutions with water as the solvent, or aqueous solutions.

4.1 Reactions in Aqueous Solutions Overview

When certain compounds dissolve their resulting solutions can conduct electricity. These solutions are referred to as electrolytic solutions, or electrolytes, as the solute dissolved produces ions in solution. Electrolytes can then be categorized as strong, weak, or non-electrolytes.

    For the second video, electrolytes, it may be beneficial for students to hear from you how to distinguish products as strong or weak electrolytes based upon the composition of the reactants. A more in depth explainiation of how these would be classified would be greatly appreciated. Go Fus!!!!
