Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Why are ionizations of strong acids and strong bases generally not treated as equilibria has to be explained

Concept Information:

Strong acids:

In strong acids, the ionization of acid is complete.  This implies that the concentration of the hydrogen ion or hydronium ion will be equal to the initial concentration of the acid at equilibrium.

Strong bases:

Strong bases are formed from alkali metals and alkaline earth metals of Group IA and IIA respectively.

 Strong base dissociates into its constituent ions.

For Group IA metal hydroxides, the hydroxide ion concentration is simply the initial concentration of the strong base

For Group IIA metal hydroxides, the hydroxide ion concentration at equilibrium will be twice that of the initial concentration of strong base

To Explain: Why are ionizations of strong acids and strong bases generally not treated as equilibria
