The equivalence point during titration of an
acid with a base may not occur at a pH of 7.0
because
1. the indicator may be one that changes
color at some other pH.
2. if a strong acid or base is used, it is com-
pletely ionized and therefore not neutral.
3. hydrolysis of the salt produced may make
the solution acidic or basic.
4. The statement is false; the pH must be
7.0 at the equivalence point.
5. A solution containing a weak acid or a
weak base could never be neutral.
