Acid vs Base. Bases are the chemical opposite of acids.

Acid vs Base

Acids are defined as compounds that donate a hydrogen ion (H+) to another compound (called a base). Traditionally, an acid (from the Latin acidus or acere meaning sour) was any chemical compound that, when dissolved in water, gives a solution with a hydrogen ion activity greater than in pure water, i.e. a pH less than 7.0. Correspondingly, a base was any compound that, when dissolved in water, gives a solution with a hydrogen ion activity lower than that of pure water, i.e. a pH higher than 7.0 at standard conditions.

A soluble base is also called an alkali. A reaction between an acid and a base is called neutralization and this neutralization results in production of water and a salt. Properties of acids vs bases Bases have a slippery feel on fingers and taste bitter.

Middle Level Science (Grades 5–8)

Radioactive isotope labeling using elements such as carbon and nitrogen has contributed most significantly to biology by facilitating the: creation of diffraction images for deducing the chemical structure of nucleotides. use of spectral analysis to determine the chemical composition of biomolecules. analysis of the movement of molecules during biochemical processes. ability to physically separate large macromolecules such as proteins from the cell cytoplasm. 2.
