pH

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

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

Quiz Determine the pH of a .0034 M HNO3 solution.
Determine the pOH of the solution in #1. What is the pH of a 2.4 x 10-5 M HCl solution?

Auto-Ionization of Water
In water, Kc= [H+][OH-] 55.5 M [OH-]= Kw [H30+]= Kw [H30+] [OH-] ion product constant for water  Kc (55.5M) = [H+][OH-] = Kw  Kw= [H30+] [OH-]  Kw= Example: What is the hydroxide ion concentration in an aqueous solution that is 4.0 x 10-5 M H30+? [OH-] = (1.0 x 10-14) (4.0 x 10-5) =2.5 x M

Practice What is the hydronium ion concentration in an aqueous solution containing 3.5 x 10-7 OH-? [H30+] = (1.0 x 10-14) (3.5 x 10-7) =2.9 x 10-8 What is the hydroxide ion concentration in an aqueous solution containing 8.34 x H30+ ? [OH-] = (1.0 x 10-14) (8.34 x 10-12) =1.20 x 10 -3

Strong Acids dissociate completely in water to form hydronium ion(s)
Examples HCl HNO3 H2SO4

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