pH

pH is a unit of measure which describes the degree of acidity or
alkalinity (basic) of a solution.
It is measured on a scale of 0 to 14.

Mathematically: pH = -log[H
+
]
pH= power of hydrogen
log = logarithm (math function)
[H
+
] = concentration of H
+
expressed
in Molarity (moles/liter)
So this means
log 1000 = log 10
3
= 3 or that log 0.0000001 = log 10
-7
= 7
So this means that some pH problems, the ones that are powers of 10 are vey easy. Let's look
at some of these

pOH
p_ is just a short hand way of describing large
concentration differences that exists for many
other particles. pAg describes the concentration
of silver ions. pCl describes the concentration of
Cl ions. pOH descries the concentration of
hydroxide ions. pOH is calculated in exactly the
same way that pH is calculated.

pOH = -log[OH

[OH-] = 0.00000000845 M Convert this first to a
number in scientific notation.

[OH-] = 8.45 x 10

M (immediately you can see that
the pOH should be close to 8 or 9)

Calculating pH
What is the pH if the hydrogen ion concentration in a
vinegar solution is 0.001 M?
pH = log[H
+
]
pH = log(0.001)
pH =

(

3) = 3
The pH of the vinegar is 3, so the vinegar is acidic.
The pH Scale
Most solutions have a pH between 0 and 14.
Acidic solutions have a pH less than 7.
As a solution becomes more acidic, the pH decreases.
Basic solutions have a pH greater than 7.
As a solution becomes more basic, the pH increases.

pH testing
There are several ways to test pH
Blue litmus paper (red = acid)
Red litmus paper (blue = basic)
pH paper (multi-colored)
pH meter (7 is neutral, <7 acid, >7
base)
Universal indicator (multi-colored)
Indicators like phenolphthalein
Natural indicators like red cabbage,
Paper testing
Paper tests like litmus paper
and pH paper
Put a stirring rod into the solution and
stir.
Take the stirring rod out, and place a
drop of the solution from the end of
the stirring rod onto a piece of the
paper
Read and record the color change.
Note what the color indicates.
You should only use a small portion of
the paper. You can use one piece of
paper for several tests.

Acid/Base Classifications of Solutions
A solution can be classified according to its pH:
Strongly acidic solutions have
a pH less than 2.
Weakly acidic solutions have
a pH between 2 and 7.
Weakly basic solutions have a
pH between 7 and 12.
Strongly basic solutions have
a pH greater than 12.
Neutral solutions have a pH
of 7.
The pH Concept
Recall that pH is a measure of the acidity of a solution.
A neutral solution has a pH of 7, an acidic solution has
a pH less than 7, and a basic solution has a pH greater
than 7.
The pH scale uses powers of ten to express the
hydrogen ion concentration.
Mathematically: pH = log[H
+
]
[H
+
] is the molar hydrogen ion concentration

What is the pH if the hydrogen ion concentration in a
vinegar solution is 0.001 M?
pH = log[H

]
pH = log(0.001)
pH =

The pH of the vinegar is 3, so the vinegar is acidic.

If pH is a measure of the hydronium ion
concentration then the same equations could be
used to describe the hydroxide (base)
concentration.

thus:

Preparing a Buffer in Real Life
Suppose you wish to prepare 1.00 L of buffer
containing 0.100 M tris at pH 7.60. When we say
0.100 M tris, we mean that the total concentration of
tris plus tris H+ will be 0.100M.
Procedure:
1. Weigh out 0.100 mol tris hydrochloride and dissolve it in a
beaker containing about 800 mL water and a stirring bar.
2. Place a pH electrode in the solution and monitor the pH.
3. Add NaOH solution until the pH is exactly 7.60. The electrode
does not respond instantly.
4. Transfer the solution to a volumetric flask and wash the beaker
and stirring bar a few times. Add the washings to the
5. Dilute to the mark and mix.

Buffer capacity measures how well a solution resists changes
in pH when acid or base is added.
The greater the buffer capacity, the less the pH changes.
