What is the [ H 3 O + ] in a solution with a pH of 11?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The concentration of hydronium ions in the given solutions is to be calculated.

Concept Introduction:

The pH of an aqueous solution is the measurement of hydrogen ion activity. Here, pH stands for potential of hydrogen. It is represented as

pH=log[H+].

Based on the hydrogen and hydroxide ion concentrations, solutions maybe neutral, acidic, or basic in nature.

If the concentrations of hydrogen ions and hydroxide ions are equal, then the solution will be neutral; if the concentration of hydrogen ions is greater than hydroxide ions, then the solution will be acidic in nature; if the concentration of hydroxide ions is greater than hydrogen ions, then the solution will be basic in nature.

Explanation of Solution

Given information: pH=11

For any given aqueous solution, pH is a measure of hydrogen ion concentration, basically a measure of acidity or alkalinity of a solution.

The pH is calculated by the following expression:

pH=log[H+]or pH=log[H3O+]
