Taking into account 10^-7 [H3O+]

Postby melissa_dis4K » Thu Feb 07, 2019 1:17 pm

In class, Professor Lavelle said that there are times when we need to take into account that 10^-7 [H3O+] but other times it is negligible. I am confused on what he meant and when we do take it into account. Thank you!

If the H3O+ concentration you calculated is smaller or close to 10^-7, you have to take the 10^-7 into consideration as it is no longer negligible
