CHEM 120: Week 4 Lab Laboratory 5: Acid, Base and pH Study Guide.Learning Objectives: Identify acid, base, pH, and buffer. Measure the pH of solutions with different techniques and how they compare. Explain the concept of neutralization. Explain how acids behave in both water and buffer solutions. The chemistry of acids and bases is an important area of chemistry involved in everything from the way our bodies function to the synthesis of the latest drug molecules. From the shampoo you u sed this morning to the cup of tea you had at lunch, we are surrounded by solutions with specific pH values. In this laboratory, you will explore this important area of chemistry. After learning important acid and base terminology, you will learn how to measure pH, identify acids and bases, and explain the importance of buffers.
