Ion Concentration Analysis

SKU: LTIOC00CENDuration: 60 Minutes

This course introduces participants to the basic principles associated with ions as well as laboratory procedures that depend on the presence of ions. The course includes an explanation of how ions are formed and how they can be represented. In addition, the course describes how a pH meter can be used to measure the acidity or alkalinity of a liquid and how a conductance meter can be used to measure a liquid's ability to conduct current. The course also includes an explanation of the process of ion exchange chromatography.

  • Define the following terms: "ion," "net charge," "cation," "monatomic cation," "polyatomic cation," "anion," "monatomic anion," and "polyatomic anion."
  • Describe various ways in which different types of ions can be represented.
  • Define the following terms: "acid," "base," "neutral," and "pH."
  • Describe the difference between a strong acid and a weak acid and the difference between a strong base and a weak base.
  • Describe a typical pH meter and explain how it can be used to measure the concentration of hydrogen ions in a sample.
  • Define the following terms: "conductance," "electrolyte," "conductance," "chromatography," and "ion exchange chromatography."
