Interpretation: The amount of (in grams) needed to prepare 546 mL of solution with a pH of 10.00 at has to be calculated
The of a solution is defined as the negative base-10 logarithm of the hydroxide ion concentration. scale is analogous to pH scale.
Relationship between and
is similar to . The only difference is that in the concentration of hydroxide ion is used as a scale while in , the concentration of hydronium ion is used.
The relationship between the hydronium ion concentration and the hydroxide ion concentration is given by the equation,
As and are opposite scale, the total of both has to be equal to 14.
To Calculate: The amount of (in grams) needed to prepare 546 mL of solution
