The pH of a sample of stomach acid is 1. A sample of lemon juice has a pH of 2. Compared to the [H+ ]of stomach acid the [H+ ] of the lemon juice is...

The pH of a sample of stomach acid is 1.5. A sample of lemon juice has a pH of 2.5. Compared to the [H+ ]of stomach acid the  [H+ ] of the lemon juice is _________.

a. 1.0 times higher

b. 10 times lower

c. 10 times higher 

Top Answer

pH of a sample of stomach acid is 1.5. PH = -log [H+] = 1.5 [H+] = 0.0316 M... View the full answer

Solution The correct option is: b. 10 times lower [H + ] = 10^-pH pH of stomach acid  = 1.5 [H + ]... View the full answer

pH = -log [H + ] Hence, [H + ] = 10 -pH pH of lime juice = 2.5 Therefore, [H + ] of lime juice = 10 -pH = 10... View the full answer

pH = - log[H + ] or, [H + ] = 10 -pH pH = 1.5 that is [H + ] =... View the full answer
