Problem 67P

Classify each solution as acidic, basic, or neutral according to its pH value.

(a) pH = 8.0

(b) pH = 7.0

(c) pH = 3.5

(d) pH = 6.1

Step-by-Step Solution:

Problem 67P

Classify each solution as acidic, basic, or neutral according to its pH value.

(a) pH = 8.0

(b) pH = 7.0

(c) pH = 3.5

(d) pH = 6.1

                                                            Step by step solution

Step 1 of 4

     - If a solution has pH 1-7, then hydronium ion concentration dominates the hydroxide concentration so the solution will be acidic in nature

     - If the value of pH is 7 then the concentration of the hydronium ion and hydroxide ion are equal so the solution will be neutral

     - If the value of pH is 7-14 then the hydroxide ion concentration dominates hydronium ion concentration so the solution will be basic in  nature.

 

(a)

From the  given,

 pH = 8.0

 

Here, the solution is basic because the value of pH >7.

Therefore, the solution is basic.
