Acid-Base Diagrams by Heike Kahlert, Fritz Scholz

By Heike Kahlert, Fritz Scholz

Figuring out acid-base equilibria made effortless for college kids in chemistry, biochemistry, biology, environmental and earth sciences. fixing chemical difficulties, be it in schooling or in actual existence, frequently calls for the knowledge of the acid-base equilibria in the back of them. in accordance with decades of educating adventure, Heike Kahlert and Fritz Scholz current a strong software to fulfill such demanding situations. they supply an easy advisor to the basics and functions of acid-base diagrams, averting advanced arithmetic. This textbook is richly illustrated and has complete colour all through. It deals studying gains equivalent to boxed effects and a set of formulae.

Left of the neutrality point of water. 2 Very Strong Bases in High Concentration As discussed in Chap. 2, in water the strength of those bases which are stronger than OHÀ ions are leveled off. As an example, ethanolate ions react with water to yield ethanol and OHÀ ions. If one would try to prepare an aqueous solution of 10À1 mol LÀ1 of sodium ethanolate (cf. Fig. 45), the following charge balance must hold: cH3 Oþ ¼ cOHÀ À cHB (62) This means that the pH of the solution must be situated slightly to the right of the pH-coordinate of P1 in Fig.

2). 1 Very Strong Acids in High Concentration Very strong acids possess pKa values smaller than zero. , log C HCl ¼ À1). Of course, Eq. (49) must hold: cH3 Oþ ¼ cOHÀ þ cBÀ (49) This excludes the fact that the real pH is situated on the right side of the crossing point P1 in Fig. 32, as there the sum of cOHÀ þ cBÀ is always larger than cH3 Oþ . The real pH must be situated slightly left to P1, as the following reason shows. The overall H3 Oþ concentration is the sum of what was formed in reaction equation (1) and reaction equation (2).

When the line of HB is situated to the left of the H3 Oþ line (cf. Fig. 40), the pH of the solution must still be basic. The relationship equation (72) is still a good simplification, and the desired simplified equation follows as given here. Fig. 75) 46 4 The Application of pH-logci Diagrams for. . Simplified equation for a weak base in low concentration: cH3 Oþ sffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffi K2w ¼ Kw þ Kb C BÀ (90) For very low concentrations of the base, Eq. (71) can be used. 3 Weak Acids and Their Corresponding Strong Bases NHþ 4 /NH3 is a good example for a weak acid with a corresponding strong base.
