pH Scale and Calculations Chapter 14 Page
pH Scale We use this scale to measure the strength of an acid or base. pH is defined as the –log[H+] pH can use the concentration of hydronium ions or hydrogen ions.
pH Scale Acid Base Zumdahl, Zumdahl, DeCoste, World of Chemistry 2002, page 515

Self-Ionization Of Water Even the purest of water conducts electricity. This is due to the fact that water self-ionizes, that is, it creates a small amount of H 3 O + and OH -. H 2 O + H 2 O º H 3 O + + OH - K w =[H 3 O + ][OH - ] K w - ion product of water K w = 1.0 x at 25 o C This equilibrium constant is very important because it applies to all aqueous solutions - acids, bases, salts, and non-electrolytes - not just to pure water.

pH and pOH pH = - log[H 3 O + ][H 3 O + ] = 10 -pH pOH = - log[OH - ][OH - ] = 10 -pOH pK w = pH + pOH = neutral solution: [H 3 O + ] = [OH - ] = 10 –7 M pH = 7.0 acidic solution: [H 3 O + ] > M pH < 7.0 basic solution: [H 3 O + ] 7.0
