This song differentiates between Arrhenius Acids and Bases and describes titration. All music and lyrics copyright 2005 by Mark Rosengarten. All rights reserved.

Lyrics:

Acids and bases, in life you have a place
Acids have a hydrogen, hydroxide for a base

Acids give off H+ when in water they are stirred
Forming H3O+, hydroniums the word
The more hydroniums there are, the lower pH gets
All because the silly acid had to go get wet!

Reactive metals like Ca and Fe oxidize
When reacted with an acid they can really shrink in size
Gaseous hydrogen is formed as well as salt in fact
But metals like Au, Ag and Cu wont react!

Acids and bases, in life you have a place
Acids have a hydrogen, hydroxide for a base

Bases yield hydroxide, OH- how we write
When dissolved in water, and disappear from sight
The more hydroxide ions, the higher pH slopes
The more slippery it feels as it turns your skin to soap!

Fats are hydrolyzed by bases, turns them into soap
Which can be fashioned into bars or dangled from a rope
Bases form when active metals H2O are placed
Sodium forms sodium hydroxide, a strong base!

Acids and bases, in life you have a place
Acids have a hydrogen, hydroxide for a base

Put the two together and you get some real neat stuff
Its called neutralization, I can never get enough
It makes water molecules and salt with no regrets
Titrations what you call it when you mix them with burets

MaVa = MbVb can be used to calculate
Concentrations of an acid or a base when you titrate
Just remember that Ma or Mb will get multiplied
By the number of each ion by which theyre identified!

Acids and bases, in life you have a place
Acids have a hydrogen, hydroxide for a base
