CBSE Class 10 Science Chapter 2 - Acids, Bases and Salts
Brief Information: NCERT Class 10 Science Chapter 2 is all about acids, bases and salts. In previous classes, students have learned that the sour and bitter tastes of food are due to acids and bases, respectively, present in them. We all know that acids are sour in taste and change the colour of blue litmus to red, whereas, bases are bitter and change the colour of the red litmus to blue. In this chapter, we will study the reactions of acids and bases, how acids and bases cancel out each other’s effects and many more interesting things that we use in our day-to-day life. Students will get to understand the chemical properties of acids and bases, how acids and bases react with metals, how do metal carbonates and metal hydrogen carbonates react with acids, how do acids and bases react with each other, reaction of metallic oxides with acids and reaction of a non-metallic oxide with base explained with suitable examples and various chemical reactions.
The chapter then explains what all acids and bases have in common with a suitable example which gives the conclusion that acid solution in water conducts electricity. Students get to learn various experiments on what happens to acid or a base in a water solution and how strong are acid or base solutions by making use of universal indication. Along with it, students will get to learn about the importance of pH in everyday life. The chapter ends with explaining in detail about salt preparation, properties and its uses.
