1 pH

2 Definitions and Formulas The pH scale is defined as the negative log of the concentration of H + : pH = -log[H + ] The pOH scale is defined as the negative log of the concentration of OH -, [OH - ]. pOH = -log[OH - ] With this scale, calculating the pOH can be done in the same manner as the pH scale. pH + pOH = 14

3 Examples What is the pH of a solution that contains 25 g of hydrochloric acid (HCl) dissolved in 1.5 L of water?

4 Quiz 1.Determine the pH of a.0034 M HNO 3 solution. 2.Determine the pOH of the solution in #1. 3.What is the pH of a 2.4 x M HCl solution?

5 Auto-Ionization of Water [OH - ]= K w [H ]= K w [H ] [OH - ] Example: What is the hydroxide ion concentration in an aqueous solution that is 4.0 x M H ? [OH-] = (1.0 x ) (4.0 x ) =2.5 x M ion product constant for water  Kc (55.5M) = [H+][OH-] = Kw  K w = [H 3 0+] [OH-]  K w = In water, Kc= [H+][OH-] 55.5 M

6 Practice What is the hydronium ion concentration in an aqueous solution containing 3.5 x OH - ? [H ] = (1.0 x ) (3.5 x ) =2.9 x What is the hydroxide ion concentration in an aqueous solution containing 8.34 x H ? [OH - ] = (1.0 x ) (8.34 x ) =1.20 x 10 -3

7 Strong Acids dissociate completely in water to form hydronium ion(s) Examples –HCl –HNO 3 –H 2 SO 4

8 Strong Bases dissociate completely in water to form hydroxide ions Examples: –NaOH –KOH –Ca(OH) 2
