## Question

**Complete the tables of value for four aqueous solutions at 25 celsius**.

## Answer 1 (Expert Verified)

There are a total of four parameters you need to know to determine the pH of the solution. The pH and the pOH are negative logarithms of the concentrations of the ions H+ and OH-, respectively. These ions are the solvated ions of in an acid-base reaction. The equations are as follows:

pH = -log [H+]

pOH = -log [OH-]

Lastly, the pH range is from 1 to 14. So, it is easier to remember that pH + pOH is equal to 14. So, we use these three equations for the solutions.

Solution A:**pH = -log(6.4×10^-13) = 12.2****pOH = 14 – 12.2 = 1.8**

1.8 = -log[OH-]**[OH-] = 0.016 M**

Solution B:**pOH = -log(2.7×10^-10) = 9.6****pH = 14 – 9.6 = 4.4**

4.4 = -log[H+]**[H+] = 3.98×10^-5 M**

Solution C:

8.11 = -log(H+)**H+ = 7.76×10^-9****pOH = 14 – 8.11 = 5.89**

5.89 = -log[OH-]**[OH-] = 1.288×10^-6 M**

Solution D:**pH = 14 – 4.73 = 9.27**

9.27= -log[H+]**[H+] = 5.37×10^-10 M**

4.73 = -log[OH-]**[OH-] = 1.862×10^-5 M**

## Answer 2

The table of values for four aqueous solutions at is as shown in Table 1.

**Further Explanation:**

The negative logarithm of **hydrogen ion **concentration is termed as **pH** while that of **hydroxide ion** concentration is** pOH**. Higher the **pH** of solution, more will be the alkalinity and vice-versa. Similarly, higher value of pOH indicates solution is acidic in nature .
