Ionization and Ionic Equilibrium

[motion picture] Uses animation and live-action photography to explain the ionization process, the releasing of ions from crystals of salt, ionization of covalent compounds, and the conditions of ionic equilibrium. The differences between electrolytes and non- electrolytes are demonstrated and the ionization of a salt in both aqueous solution and the fused state is shown. The role of the water molecule in dissociation, the concept of ionic equilibrium, the K constant as an index of slightly ionized electrolytes, and the relation of the common ion effect to buffered solutions are illustrated both pictorially and mathematically.
