Buffers and Proteins Worksheet Buffers The carbonic acid-bicarbonate buffer system is important for maintaining biological pH. To represent pH 7.4, let’s say there are 4 carbonic acid and 4 bicarbonate atoms in our solution. Draw a picture below to represent this: 3 molecules of strong acid HCl are added to this solution. Draw a picture representing how the buffer system would react: Is this solution pH 7.4, higher than 7.4, or lower than 7.4? What if 5 molecules of NaOH, a strong base, were added to the original solution? Draw a picture to represent what the solution would look like: Is this solution pH 7.4, higher than 7.4, or lower than 7.4? Bio93 Discussion Week 4 10/18/10
