Oops. I just realised I forgot to give an answer to:
“Q1) Why is pKa and not pH used to measure the relative strength of acids and bases?” On Tutorial 2b

The answer is because pH depends on the concentration of H+ ions and this can vary dramatically. e.g. a 0.1M solution of HCl has a pH of 1. A 0.0001M solution of HCl has a pH of 4. But with pKa values, the value is independent of dilution as pKa is based on an equilibrium constant. Equilibrium constants you will remember only vary with changes with temperature.

sir, i’m sorry.but i cannot send you the video about the alkene and alkyne because it cannot be send via email.what can i do?should i just send to your room directly?..

Have you tried compressing it to an flv file? Those types of files are usually pretty small. about 2Mb per minute. If you can’t compress it any more, then OK. put it on a CD and drop it off in my office. I won’t be in until next week however.
