We are having a chemistry test today on buffer solutions and systems. I understand that only weak acids and bases can be used in buffer solutions. Why is this so? Wouldn’t a strong acid or base resist pH change much more readily?
Last semester there was an interesting debate within my friend group… Is the base substance for ice cream cooked before it is frozen? What are your opinions on this idea and do you agree or disagree?
Last semester I posted a question like this and I think it would be fun to do another one this semester. Whoever can post an ecology joke on this question and receive the most up-votes, I will give that individual the 10 points from this question! I will be awarding the points on Wednesday, April 12th at 11:00 pm. Good Luck! 🙂
Right now I am in Chem 1020, and we are covering acid and base reactions. My understanding is that these types of reactions are prominent in biological functions. Can someone explain why/how? Or am I incorrect?
I know during lecture this week I asked this question, but I wanted to see what you all could find about this topic. While doing my discussion questions over the weekend I read and answered several questions regarding different fertilization methods. I read a lot about external fertilization and wanted to know more. Thank you all!
