### Fall 2015 Final Exam Question 8D

"During a strong-base strong-acid titration calculate the pH when 49.00 mL of 0.100 M NaOH has been added to 50.00 mL of 0.100 M HCl." The answer states: Moles of NaOH present = (49.00/1000) x 0.1 = 4.9x10^-3 Moles of HCl present = (50.00/1000) x 0.1 = 5.0x10^-3 I was confused as to why we...
