    Bonus Episode: How to Recognise a Weak Acid?

    Bonus Episode: How to Recognise a Weak Acid?

    This bonus episode gives you five things to look for to help you identify whether an acid is a weak acid.
    Your exam question is unlikely to spell that out for you. Very unlikely indeed. Here are the simple things to look for that will put you one step ahead of the examiner!


    Suggested listening:
    Episode 9 which introduces the difference between a strong acid and a weak acid and defines how to calculate pH.
    Episode 10 which explains the calculations required with weak acids and the acid dissociation constant, Ka.

    How To Use the Equilibrium Constant Kc

    How To Use the Equilibrium Constant Kc

    In this episode we consider how to quantify the position of equilibrium using the equilibrium constant Kc.
    We also talk through which changes of conditions cause a change in Kc value, and which don't. This will be something that will come up in your exams!
    You can read the article that accompanies the episode https://chemistrymadesimple.net/episode/8 (here).
