Acid and Base Reaction

Postby MHarrold_1E » Mon Dec 07, 2020 11:04 am

When neutralization occurs, when the concentration of H30+ is higher than OH- than the solution is acid. Will we need to know how to calculate the concentration? How else would we find out if the solution is acidic or basic?

If the reaction involves a strong acid or base, the concentration of H3O+ or OH- will be equal to the concentration of the acid or base, respectively. If it's a weak acid or base then we need to use equilibrium which won't be tested in this course.
