(2017) pp 3335 Using Probability and Mathematica Software to Visualize the Ionization of Amino AcidsIgor Novak ^{}^{}^{}^{}^{}^{}^{}^{}^{}^{}^{}^{}^{}Charles Sturt University, POB 883, Orange NSW 2800, Australia, inovak@csu.edu.au Published: 14 February 2017 Abstract. In this work the use of simple probability theory and Mathematica software to rationalize the ionization of amino acids (AA) under different pH conditions is described. It is shown how the notion of probability relates to concentration and how acidbase chemistry can be taught in a straightforward manner where it concerns chemical/biochemical topics.
