Acids and bases are common substances found in many every day items, from fruit juices and soft drinks to soap. In this chapter, we will examine the properties of acids and bases, and learn about the chemical nature of these important compounds. We will cover pH, and how to calculate the pH of a solution.
- 11.4: Buffers are Solutions that Resist pH Change
- A buffer is a solution that resists dramatic changes in pH. Buffers do so by being composed of certain pairs of solutes: either a weak acid plus a salt derived from that weak acid, or a weak base plus a salt of that weak base.
