pH vs pOH

Postby Hector Acosta Discussion 1H » Fri Dec 08, 2017 7:12 pm

What is the difference between pH and pOH? Which one tells us how basic and how acidic a substance is?

pH is equal to 14-pOH. pH can be calculated from concentration of H3O+ and pOH is calculated from concentration of OH-.

pH measures how acidic a solution is while pOH measures how basic a solution is. Both are calculated by taking the negative log of the concentration. pH + pOH = 14 should be used when moving from pH to pOH or vice versa.
