when to use what equation

Postby 205192823 » Sat Dec 07, 2019 5:35 pm

I was going over the textbook and I was still confused on when I should use what equation when solving for the pH for certain things.

to find pH you generally use -log[H+] when given H+ concentration or 14-(-log[OH-]) the given the concentration of OH-.

Also, 10^-ph gives you the H+ concentration.

Ka and Kb is for weak acids and bases.

[H+]= 10^-pH [OH-}= 10^-pOH pH=-log[H+] pH= 14-(-log[OH-])
