    Now it is time to do a scavenger hunt around your house to find more examples of acids and bases. Be sure to check in your fridge, medicine cabinet, and in the cleaning supplies. Don’t forget to read the labels on products to find the names or formulas of acids and bases they may contain. Find at least five acids and five bases for your list, making sure that there are some items on your list that were not mentioned in the lesson. Whenever possible, list the product/item and the formula or name of the acid or base.

    That's pretty easy, actually. Obviously there are some things mentioned in the lesson that are probably not that hard to find. However, for example, dish soap is a base. Milk is also a base. Then there is white vinegar, which is an acid. It wants you to also list the product (so like milk) and its formula OR its name. So, the chemical formula for white vinegar, for example, would be CH(_3) COOH, while its name is loosely acetic acid(but vinegar is distilled a little)

    One definite thing is that, when put through the test with Litmus paper, the paper will turn blue if it is a base. Soap is a base, which is why it's so good at breaking up the grime on your hands and body

    The bicarbonate ion is also amphoteric which means that it can act as both an acid and a base depending on the situation. CO3^2- + H2O = HCO3^- + OH^- The bicarbonate ion is amphoteric, capable of reacting with water as a base and as an acid: As an acid: HCO3^- + OH^- = CO3^2- + H2O As a base: HCO3^- + H2O = H2CO3 + OH^- as aa base you can see that the bicarbonate ion, same as sodium bicarbonate, just in aqueous solution Na+ dissociates and it reacts with water, it's pulling off a proton from water so it's actually placing its electrons onto the water if you want to think of it in that way, causing us to get -OH

    Calcium carbonate HCl(aq) + CaCO3(s) ---> CaCl2(aq) + H2O(l) + CO2(g) the final solution can become basic because CaCO3 is a basic salt and in water it liberates OH-: CaCO3 + 2H2O ---> Ca²+(aq) + H2CO3 + 2OH-

    for this, it's a salt, and for salts, they can be either neutral salts, acidic salts, or basic salts, This depends on the strength of the acid and bases that produced them. iF we had a strong acid and a strong base, that means that we produce a neutral salt. if we had a strong base and a weak acid, we have an basic salt strong acid weak base = acidic salt. let's look at CaCO3 calcium carbonate we know ---> Ca^2+ + CO3^2-. Strong bases usually have the group one and two elements, so Ca^2+ could have been Ca(OH)2 which Is a strong base. Now the carbonate we know that that came from H2(CO3) which is a weak acid.
