Textbook Problem

You purchase a bottle of water. On checking its pH, you find that it is not neutral, as you might have expected. Instead, it is slightly acidic. Why?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The reason for a packaged bottle of water not being neutral as expected rather slightly acidic has to be determined.

Concept introduction: The pH of neutral water is 7. If the pH becomes less than 7 then the solution is acidic. The solution becomes acidic due to the presence of free protons in the water.

Explanation

Carbon dioxide gas is a water-soluble gas. Therefore all natural sources of water like river, lakes, and glaciers etc contain dissolved natural carbon dioxide gas.

Aqueous carbon dioxide gas can easily combine with water to form carbonic acid. The reaction that takes place during the phenomenon can be represented as given below

  CO2(aq)+H2OH2CO
