Problem 75P

Calculate [OH− ] for each solution.

(a) pH = 4.25

(b) pH = 12.53

(c) pH = 1.50

(d) pH = 8.25

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Step-1

The concentration of [OH-] ion and [H3O+]  can be determined as follows   ,

It is known that pH = -log [H3O+]

-pH = log [H3O+]

10 -pH  = 10log [H3O+]   or

[H3O+] = 10-pH

1.0 10-14

And   [OH-  ]  =  --------------

[H3O+]

Step-2

(a) pH = 4.25

We can calculate [OH− ], by using the following formula.

1.0 10-14

[OH-  ]  =  --------------

[H3O+]

Now the  [H3O+]  from pH = 4.25 can be calculated as follows,

[H3O+] = 10-pH  or  [H3O+] = antilog (- pH)

4.25 = - log [H3O+]

- 4.25 = log [H3O+]

[H3O+] = 10- 4.25 = 5.6 10-5 M

1.0 10-14       1.0 10-14

Thus,  [OH-  ]  =  -------------- =     -----------    = 1.78 10-20 M

[H3O+]           5.6 10-5

Step-3

(b) pH = 12.53

We can calculate [OH− ], by using the following formula.

1.0 10-14

[OH-  ]  =  --------------

[H3O+]

Now the  [H3O+]  from pH = 12.53 can be calculated as follows,

[H3O+] = 10-pH  or  [H3O+] = antilog (- pH)

12.53  = - log [H3O+]

- 12.53 = log [H3O+]

[H3O+] = 10- 12.53 = 2.95 10-13 M
