Professor Sylvia Ceyer discusses the classification of acids and bases as they are defined by Arrhenius, Bronsted-Lory, and Lewis acid/base. The pH function (and pOH function) are defined as they relate to the strength of acids and bases (in water). Professor Ceyer then runs through the types of acid-base problems and concludes by discussing equilibrium involving weak acids.
