Buffers

Postby Helen Struble 2F » Sun Jan 19, 2020 7:42 pm

What do we need to know about buffer reactions? If given a buffer system, what are potential questions we will be asked?

A buffer is defined as a chemical substance that helps maintain a relatively constant pH in a solution, even in the face of addition of acids or bases. The only thing I remember Lavelle mentioning in class was about how adding equal amounts of sodium acetate and acetic acid makes a buffer solution. I'm pretty sure that he would most likely ask a question that requires calculating the pH of a weak acid and its salt.

Any questions similar to those in the homework may be asked.
