    80. Determine the pH of a solution that has [OH-] = 1.0 x10-5 M. Is the solution acidic or basic?

    81. Determine the pOH of a solution that has [H3O+] = 1.0 x10-11 M. Is the solution acidic or basic?

    82. All strong acids are monoprotic acids except for sulfuric acid. Explain why sulfuric acid is considered a strong acid. How does it dissociate in water?

    83. All acids have at least one hydrogen ion in their formula, but not all bases have at least one hydroxide ion in their formula. From what you’ve learned so far in chemistry, try to come up with an explanation for why this occurs.
