Hi - I am taking continuuing ed. courses and have a couple of questions that I can't seem to figure out. I am looking on the web for illustrations of what happens to an acid and a base when added together. For example, I have 4 molecules of HCl and 4 mlcls of NaCl. What happens when I add another 2 mlcls of Hcl to it? 2. Is there really 2 forms of Boron? Boron 10 and Boron 11? 3. Is HBr and PBr3 an electrolyte? 4. I see where Ca(OH)2 in some areas is a strong base, but also a weak electrolyte? Which is it? Thanks for your help if you can, or please point me in a direction where I can find some answers!! Ken
Answer 1:

The internet can be a good source for very specific and timely information, however for the questions you have, the internet will likely be more frustrating than helpful. It sounds like you would benefit greatly from an inorganic or general chemistry book. I would look in a college bookstore for a used copy (probably around $30) or on Amazon. All of the questions you have will be described in detail in such a book if it is any good. Good luck.
