Problem 62P

Determine if each solution is acidic, basic, or neutral.

(a) [H3O+] = 1 × 10−9 M; [OH−] = 1 × 10−6 M

(b) [H3O+] = 1 × 10−10 M; [OH−] = 1 × 10−6 M

(c) [H3O+] = 1 × 10−2 M; [OH−] = 1 × 10−12 M

(d) [H3O+] = 1 × 10−13 M; [OH−] = 1 × 10−1 M

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 62P:

Here,  we are going find out the nature of the solution.

Water is amphoteric and it undergoes autoionization. Water behaves as an acid and a base with itself.

H2O(l) + H2O(l) ------> H3O+(aq) + OH-(aq)

The equilibrium constant is Kw= [H3O+][OH−]

Kw is known as ion product constant for water  and it is equal to  1 × 10−14  at 25oC.

Thus,

A neutral solution ,  [H3O+] = [OH-] = 1 × 10−14 M at 25oC. An acidic solution [H3O+] >  [OH-].A basic solution, [OH-] >  [H3O+].

(a) [H3O+]...
