Conjugate Acids and Bases

Just as conjugates in English are related, conjugates in chemistry are related as well. Find out how with a video that begins with defining conjugate acids and bases and quickly reviews Bronsted-Lowry Theory and its relationship to ions and protons. Finally, the video explains how to identify conjugate pairs.

Instructional Ideas

  • Create more problems for independent practice
  • One way to remember the difference between Bronstead-Lowry acids and bases is that acids accept a proton; the alliteration is a great memory aid
Classroom Considerations

  • Requires a prior understanding of Bronsted-Lowry Theory
  • Video is the seventh in a 21-part series
Pros

  • Video works well in a traditional or a flipped classroom
  • Includes multiple guided practice problems and tells you when to pause the video to solve
Cons

  • None
