Acids and Bases

Ionization of Water H 2 O + H 2 O H 3 O + + OH - K w = [H 3 O + ][OH - ] = 1.0  10 -14

Ionization of Water  Find the hydroxide ion concentration of 3.0  10 - 2 M HCl. [H 3 O + ][OH - ] = 1.0  10 -14 [3.0  10 -2 ][OH - ] = 1.0  10 -14 [OH - ] = 3.3  10 -13 M Acidic or basic? Acidic

pH = -log[H 3 O + ] pH Scale: negative logarithm of a hydrogen ion concentration 0 7 INCREASING ACIDITY NEUTRAL INCREASING BASICITY 14 pouvoir hydrogène (Fr.) “hydrogen power”

pH Scale pH of Common Substances

pH Scale pH = -log[H 3 O + ] pOH = -log[OH - ] pH + pOH = 14

pH Scale  What is the pH of 0.050 M HNO 3 ? pH = -log[H 3 O + ] pH = -log[0.050] pH = 1.3 Acidic or basic? Acidic

pH Scale  What is the molarity of HBr in a solution that has a pOH of 9.6? pH + pOH = 14 pH + 9.6 = 14 pH = 4.4 Acidic pH = -log[H 3 O + ] 4.4 = -log[H 3 O + ] -4.4 = log[H 3 O + ] [H 3 O + ] = 4.0  10 -5 M HBr
