11. The pH of x/10 would be 2 because it would be diluted by a factor of ten, it is one tenth of the pH of the x. 2. The x acid couldn’t possibly become a base which would mean that it has a pH greater than 7. Even if it is diluted many times the concentration of the H ions decreases but unless you add a base it would just become weaker and weaker until it reaches the neutral pH 7.

Unformatted text preview: 3. According to our results the dilution of the buffer proved to have very little affect on the pH. Since a buffer is supposed to help prevent changes of pH during metabolic activity it realized its potential with our results. It helped to stabilize the solutions pH....
