Equilibrium Constant for Autoprotolysis of Water

Postby Bianca Barcelo 4I » Sat Feb 09, 2019 11:57 am

In what situations can we use the equilibrium constant for the autoprotolysis of water? For example, can we assume the application of the constant for strong acids and bases?

In the lecture notes, there was an example where: given .030 M of Ba(OH)2 at 25 C, what are the molarities of H30+ and OH-? After finding the concentration of OH- we were able to find the molarity of H30+ by dividing the Kw (1.0x10^-14) by the concentration of OH- (.060).
