Bases, pH and Buffer
There are three concepts of acids and bases in current use. Each has its own peculiar
advantages. The student should understand all the three concepts: (a) Arrhenius concept,
(b) Bronsted-Lowry concept and (c) Lew
The Common Ion Effect and
If a solution is made in which the same ion is
produced by two different compounds the common
ion effect is exhibited.
Buffer solutions are solutions that resist changes in
pH when acids or bases are a

The pH meter measures at electrical potential developed by pair of
electrode pins in a solution. For measurement of pH, an electrode system sensitive
