  40. Ketone found in?
    byproduct of fatty acid metabolism. Ketones are strong and can affect the PH of body fluids
  41. Chemical Buffers
    Substances that neutralize the effect of changes in PH by attching to H+ or releasing H+, many buffers are weak acids or weak bases
  42. Bases
    • 7-14 when bases dissociated in water, they release hydroxide ions(OH-) Bases attach to H+ in solution
    • Bases are proton (H+) acceptors
  43. Acids
    0-7, when acids dissolved in water, they release hydrogen ions(H+) the number of H+ determine the acidity of a solution. H+ are also called PROTONS, acids are proton donors-donates protons.
  44. PH
    Defined as the number or concentration of hydrogen ions (H+) in a solution.
