Acids have a sour taste,
are soluble in water,
have a pH level <7,
most are corrosive,
Dilute acids conducts electricity due to the presence of mobile ions.
Bases have a bitter taste,
have pH >7,
Reacts with acids to form water and salt,
contains hydroxide ions (OH)-
Bases taste bitter, turn red litmus paper blue and have a pH greater than 7. They feel soapy or slippery, neutralize acids and they conduct electricity.
1. Bases are bitter in taste.2.Solution of bases are soapy to touch.3.Bases may or may not be soluble in water.
Hydroxide ions cause bases to have properties.
Corrosion, React vigoriously with acids not bases, lose valence electrons to form ions when bonding, like to react with nonmetals.
Nope, bases actually gives soaps their useful properties.
1. Bases generally have bitter taste. 2. Bases turn red litmus to blue. 3. Bases are slippery 4. Most bases sting on the skin. 5. Arrhenius bases are OH- ion donor
a sour taste
- dissociation constant - density - boiling point - pH - corrosiveness
sour,corrosive to metal and skin PH of <7 and POH of >7
