Finding concentration of H30+

Postby Jessica Esparza 2H » Mon Dec 02, 2019 8:52 pm

On homework question 6A.23, it says to calculate the initial molarity of Ba(OH)2 and the molarities of Ba2+, OH-, and H3O+. You can find the first two, which I got 0.05M for OH-. However I don't understand how'd you find the H3O+ concentration. Is there a certain formula you always use? The solutions used something that was Kw/[OH-]. Also is Kw always a constant?

In order to find the concentration of H3O+ or H+ you can use the concentration formula: [H+][OH-]=10^-14. If you are given OH- concentration then you can find the H+ concentration.
