Predict whether a salt will form an acid, basic or neutral solution. Outline (Timberlake 10.510.6): Reactions of Acids and Bases (10.5) AcidBase Properties of Salt Solutions (10.6) Problems for Extra Practice: 10.47, 10.49, 10.51, 10.53, 10.55, 10.57, 10.61 Mathematically, pH is the negative log of the hydronium ion concentration pH = log [H 3 O + ] For a solution with [H 3 O + ] = 1 x 104 , pH = log [1 x 104 ] pH =  [ 4.0] pH = 4.0 Calculating pH Significant Figures in pH When expressing log values, the number of decimal places in the pH is equal to the number of significant figures in the coefficient of [H 3 O + ]. coefficient decimal places [H 3 O + ] = 1 x 104 pH = 4. [H 3 O + ] = 8.0 x 106 pH = 5. 10 [H 3 O + ] = 2.4 x 108 pH = 7. 62 Guide to Calculating pH Example of Calculating pH Find the pH of a solution with a [H 3 O + ] of 1.0 x 103 . Step 1: Enter the [H 3 O + ] value: Step 2: Press log key and change the sign: Step 3: Make the number of digits after the decimal point (2) equal to the number of significant figures in the coefficient (2): Learning Check What is the pH of coffee if the [H 3 O + ] is 1 x 105 M? 1) pH = 9.0 2) pH = 7.0 3) pH = 5.0 The [H 3 O + ] of tomato juice is 2 x 104 M. What is the pH of the solution? 1) 4.0 2) 3.7 3) 10.3 Learning Check The [OH ] of a solution is 1.0 x 103 M. What is the pH? 1) 3.00 2) 11.00 3) 11.00 Learning Check Learning Check A chemist dissolves 396. mg of pure nitric acid in enough water to make up 170. mL of solution....
