Acid and Base Concentration

Postby Alison Trinh 1E » Sun Jan 19, 2020 10:09 am

Can we determine whether an acid or base is weak or strong by calculating their concentrations?

You can only determine the pH with the acid and base concentration. determining whether the acid is strong or weak, you have to analyze its formula or even draw out its structure.

If you had the concentration of an acid or base you would need to find the [H3O+] or [OH-] then find the PH of the acid. If the PH or POH are very very low they are most likely strong acids/bases.

It's easier to determine the strength with the Ka or Kb values, the concentration can't really tell you much about how much the acid/base dissociates.
