Part II: Analysis

Refer to your graphic organizers as you answer these questions: What are the characteristics common to all of the acids or all of the bases that were researched? Were there any rare exceptions? Examine each column of the graphic organizers and look for similarities. You may find it helpful to circle similar items. Record these identifying characteristics in the table below.
