The link I've added below might help you (Hydrolysis of Ions). I think that is what you mean.

However, someone stronger in this field should redo my answer.

Will a substance - with a pH of 10 - have more hydrogen ions than hydroxide ions?

No. A pH of 10 is basic, which means, by definition, that it has more hydroxide ions than hydronium* ions. *Acids and bases are not measured with hydrogen atoms but the effect is the same.

Which of the following ion ions NH4 CO32-Br-s2- has no effect on pH?


How much pH does a lemon have?

A lemon has a pH that ranges from 2-3. Though lemons are highly acidic on the pH scale, they have an alkaline effect on the body.

How is the pH scale shifted by the use of hydrogens ions?

pH is a measure of Hydrogen concentration pH = -log10[H+], where [H+] is the concentration of hydrogen ions. From this equation, we can see that an increase of hydrogen ions will lower the pH, and a decrease of hydrogen ions will raise the pH. =D

What is the harmful effect of abnormal pH in formulation of medicines?

A low pH is an abundance of hydrogen ions, where a high pH is an abundance of hydroxide. Both are important components in the formation and stability of many chemicals.

Why does pH of medium rise when urea is hydrolyzed?

pH is the measure of H+ ions. The more the concentration of H+ ions, the less the pH value and the more the concentration of OH- ions and lesser the concentration of H+ ions, the more is the pH value.

How do hydroxyl ions and hydronium ions affect pH?

As the concentration of hydronium ions (H+ ions) increases or as the concentration of hydroxyl ions (OH- ions) decreases, the pH of the solution decreases

How do sodium and potassium help maintain the proper pH of body fluids?

The body pH is a balance between positively charged ions (acid-forming) and negatively charged ions (alkaline-forming.). Sodium is responsible to control total amount water in body, major cation outside cell. Potassium cation major cation Inside cell.

How do ions relate to something's pH?

The pH is related to the activity of hydrogen ions (H+) in a solution.

How is the concentration of hydrogen ions and hydroxide ions related in aqueous solutions?

Hydrogen ions: pH under 7.Hydroxide ions: pH over 7.

The regulation of pH is the control of which ions?

hydrogen ions.

What is the effect of temperature on pH OF WATER?

Water ionises futher as temperature rises, so hydrogen ion concentration rises, that means that pH decreases. BUT water remains neutral as the number of hydroxyl ions must remain equal to the hydrogen ions. This is why a pH meter always has a temperure compensating probe.
