The pH value of a solution is 5.50. What is the concentration of the hydronium ion?


Expert Answer

Step 1

The measure of the hydrogen ion or hydronium ion concentration of in a solution is termed as pH of the solution. Mathematically, pH is defined as the negative logarithm of concentration of hydrogen ion or hydronium ion.

pH -log H or pH log[HO

Step 2

According to the data given in the question,

pH of the solution  = 5.50

Concentration of hydronium ion = to be calculated

On substituting all...
