Acids, Bases, and pH






Paul Andersen explains pH as the power of hydrogen. He explains how increases in the hydronium ion (or hydrogen ion) concentration can lower the pH and create acids. He also explains how the reverse is true. An analysis of a strong acid and strong base is also included.

  1. You must be more specific. I found issue in the way you used the term 'we' when speaking about the acronym pH, it made me believe that you and the scientific community didn't know what it meant, it was just very confusing.

  2. Dude, I'm a chemistry teacher and thought I'd check out your videos. No offense but you're going WAY too fast and without any connective explanation for kids to retain. Teach it as if you just learned it yourself. Just an FYI.

  3. I BELIEVE WE KNOW IT IA AN ACID EQ IF IT HAVE H AT THE BEGINNING & THAT IT IS ALKALINE IF IT HAVE OH AT THE END SO THATS WAY WATER IS ( H OH
    ) IN ORDER 2 BE NATURAL 4 OUR SAFETY IMAGEN DRINKING MEDICINE WITH ALKALINE OR ACID

  4. Honestly I think Mr. Andersen is super boring and I don’t like taking tests about his videos but he does cover lots of material and he’s, admittedly, helpful

  5. I love how everyone watching this video is  trying to find a quick fix for the lack of studying we did in prep for our test in less than 24 hrs. we are in this together
