Step 1

The term buffer solutions can be used to define those solution which resist changes in their pH when a small amount of acid or base is added to them.

These solutions consist of such things which are able to remove any hydroxide or the hydrogen ions that are added to them, otherwise the pH can change.

Step 2

One of the most common examples of the buffer solution is an acidic buffer such as a mixture of ethanoic acid and sodium ethanoate in a given solution. If the mixture consists of equal molar concentrations of both the...
