An introduction to Ionic Strength

An introduction to Ionic Strength Background To quantify the effect of inter-ionic interactions, such as molecular attraction and repelling, one has to have a `parameter` describing themagnitude of these forces and how they alter the way certain calculation are done. Topic: Equilibriums The pH s...

Buffers and Equilibriums

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...

Questions & Answers

Questions & Answers Question about acetate buffer and what happens when HCl is added to such a solutionDebra ask:How do I attack this problem?I want to compare the effect of adding 1mmol of HCL to 100 ml of 0.2M acetate buffer at two different starting pH's. (pKa of acetate buffer =4.7Initial pH = 4.7Initial pH = 5.7Thank youHi Debra,There is bo...
