9: Equilibrium Applications

  • Page ID
    • 9.1: Acid and Base Strength
      Acids can be classified as strong or weak based on the extent to which they produce H3O+ when dissolved in water.
    • 9.2: Buffers
      A buffer is a solution of a weak acid or a base and its salt. Both components must be present for the system to act as a buffer to resist changes in pH. The salt is the conjugate of the weak acid or of the weak base.
