buffered solutions  - contains weak conjugate acid-base pair   resists drastic pH changes able to neutralize both H+ and OH- ions conjugate acid-base pair can't consume each other usually created by combining a weak acid/base w/ its salt pH of buffer = log ([base] / [acid]) - log (Ka) o pH = pKa + log ([X-] / [HX]) buffer capacity - amount of acid/base the buffer can neutralize before pH begins changing add strong acid >> [HX] increases, [X-] decreases add strong base >> [X-] incresaes, [HX] decreases If the buffer system in blood is made up of carbonic acid and sodium bicarbonate, what is the base to acid ratio if the  pH is measured to be 7.41?   Given: o pH = 7.41 o Ka of carbonic acid = 4.3 x 10-7 o Ka = [H+] [X-] / [HX] [H+] = 10-7.41 4.3 x 10-7 = [H+] [HCO3-] / [H2CO3]

### 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.
