12.23 in sixth edition

Postby Alexa Tabakian 1A » Mon Jan 14, 2019 9:13 pm

I'm confused on how to set up the equation to get H30+ if we are only given one number which is Kw. Can someone please explain?

Given Kw of 2.1 10^-14, you know that [H3O+] and [OH-] have to be the same because water is neutral so one cannot be greater than the other. So the [H3O+] and [OH-] is the square root of Kw
