Step 1

Initially, the buffer solution contains 0.311  NaHCO3 and 0.297 M Na2CO3. Na2CO3. The pH of this buffer solution may be determined by using Henderson equation as follows :

Step 2

When KOH(a base) is added to the buffer solution, it reacts with the acid as:

Step 3

Thus, on addition of KOH to the buffer solution, an equivalent amount of the acid reacts (hence its concentration decreses by an equivalent amount) and an equiva...
