Unformatted text preview: was increasing and the other was decreasing. The Water/Base and Buffer/Base mixtures were increasing, while the Water/Acid and Buffer/Acid mixtures were decreasing. The pH of the Water/Acid mixture was the one that changed the most with its pH ranging from 8.92 to 2.78. 7. CO 2 builds up when you exercise because your muscles increase the oxidation of glucose. This produces more H+ ions in the muscles. This occurs because we need more oxygen in our body. CO 2 and H+ are produced during the breakdown of glucose. Then they are removed from the muscle through blood. 8. The difference between a strong and a weak acid is that a strong acid dissociates completely in aqueous solution. A weak acid does not dissociate completely, so some of the acid still remains in the solution. Also, the stronger the acid, the lower the pH is. For example, HCl had a pH of 1.80 in the lab which is strong....
