Question about acetate buffer

This is the long and computational answer to Debra's question about what happens when 100 mmol of HCl ispoured into an 100 ml acetate buffer (0.2 M)


Buffers and Equilibriums As shortly explained in the section about how to calculate pH in a solution of dissolved NaHCO3, a buffer has the capability of keeping pH withina certain and narrow range even if an excess of hydrogen ions H+ or hydroxide ions OH- are added.In this particular page I will elaborate a bit on why buffers actually have the ca...

pH meter pH strips BackgroundpH meters have been used since 1936 when they were invented by the Danish company Radiometer.In contrast to many other measuring devices pH meters do not measure concentrations, rather they measure activities. Tobe more specific the pH meter does not measure the concentration of hydrogen ions.pH meters are used to ...

NaHCO3 dissolved in water - how is pH calculated? Background about buffersA buffer is a solution that has the ability to keep pH within a certain and narrow range: even if an excessof hydrogen ions (H+) is applied to the solution. In other words:buffers resist changes in pH whenreasonable amount of either H+ or OH- is added to the buffer solution.Th...

pH strips Background Substances with the property to change color when they come into contact with an either acidic or basicsolution are called pH indicators. This is used in pH strips that changes color when they come into contactwith hydrogen ions (H+) and hydroxide ions (OH-). Usually, pH strips are b...
