Problem 116P

Lakes that have been acidified by acid rain (see Chemistry in the Environment box in Section 5.9) can be neutralized by liming, the addition of limestone (CaCO3). How much limestone in kilograms is required to completely neutralize a 3.8 × 109 L lake with a pH of 5.5?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 116 P:

Here, we are going to calculate the amount of limestone required  to completely neutralize a 3.8 × 109 L lake with a pH of 5.5.

Step 1:

pH = 5.5

Concentration of H+ is

pH =-log[H+]

[H+] = 10-pH = 10 -5.5 = 3.16 x 10-6 mol/L

Step 2:

The moles of  H+ is = 3.8 × 109 L x 3.16 x 10-6 mol/ 1.0 L

                        = 12.0 x 103 mol
