P H Scale And Calculations

4,903 views

Published on

pH is a measure of the acidity or basicity of a solution. It is defined as the cologarithm of the activity of dissolved hydrogen ions (H+). Hydrogen ion activity coefficients cannot be measured experimentally, so they are based on theoretical calculations. The pH scale is not an absolute scale; it is relative to a set of standard solutions whose pH is established by international agreement.

  8. 8. Self-Ionization Of Water • Even the purest of water conducts electricity. This is due to the fact that water self-ionizes, that is, it creates a small amount of H3O+ and OH-. H2O + H2O  H3O+ + OH- Kw = [H3O+][OH-] • Kw - ion product of water Kw = 1.0 x 10-14 at 25 oC • This equilibrium constant is very important because it applies to all aqueous solutions - acids, bases, salts, and non-electrolytes - not just to pure water.
