Question 6.65

Postby Bilal Pandit 1J » Thu Mar 05, 2020 6:42 pm

What range (in volts) does a voltmeter need to have to measure pH in the range of 1 to 14 at 25 8C if the voltage is zero when pH = 7?

If I use the lower concentration value at 10^-7, I keep getting half the value of the answer in the answer booklet.

I think you need to use 10^-14 because that's where you would compare ph 14 and 1. If you use that in the denominator and numerator you should get +.828 and -.828, respectively.

There is also a typo in this question and in the solutions manual. You should find the range in pH from 0 to 14.
