Acid-Base Solutions and pH PhET simulation *Write answers and notes on your own paper Part A. Visualizing acid strength, concentration, and pH 1. Click on “Introduction”. For each solution, write down the following: Solution chemical equation at equilibrium concentration of ions (see Graph) pH reading Water 2 H 2 O H 3 O + + OH - H 3 O+ = 1.00 x 10 -7 M OH- = 1.00 x 10 -7 M 7.00 Strong acid Weak acid Strong base Weak base 2. Write down formulas for calculating pH and pOH: pH = - log [H+] pH + pOH = 14 Example (write this down!): For the pH of a solution with a hydrogen ion concentration of 1 x 10 -7 M, on your calculator, hit these keys in order: “1” → “EXP” → “-7” → “log” → “-“ (minus sign) = 7 therefore, pH of 1 x 10 -7 M = - log 1 x 10 -7 = 7 To find pOH, pOH = 14 - pH = 14 -7 = 7 therefore, pOH of solution at pH 7 = 7

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
