Properties of Salts and Buffers
Objectives Study the acid-base properties of salts and its component ions based on pH measurements. Study the properties of a buffer solution. Use a pH Sensor to monitor pH as you titrate a given volume of the commercial brand of lemonade drink. Use a pH Sensor to monitor pH as you titrate an unbuffered solution of 0.010 M citric acid. Compare the results of the unbuffered solution with the lemonade buffer system.

The acidity or basicity of a solution is often expressed by pH . pH = −log[H 3 O + ] Neutral solutions [H 3 O + ] = [OH ] = 1.00 × 10 −7 – pH water = −log[1.00x10 −7 ] = 7 Need to know the [H 3 O + ] concentration to find pH Acidic solutions Basic solutions [H 3 O + ] > [OH ] [H 3 O + ] < [OH ] pH < 7 pH > 7 If you know pH, find [H 3 O + ] [H 3 O + ] = 10 −pH
