Given the pOH is 12.22

a. what is [H+]

b. what os [OH-]

c. is it acidic or basic?


Expert Answer

Step 1


The relationship between the hydronium ion concentration and the hydroxide ion concentration is given by the equation as follows,

pH + pOH = 14.

From given pOH, the pH is first calculated. Then [H+] concentration is determined as shown below,
