What could you add to the solution to increase the pH?
Using common household chemicals as an example, to change a solution to become more acid, you could add vinegar, to change a solution to move to more of an alkaline you could add baking soda.
Suppose you wanted to increase the pH of a solution what could you add to the solution to increase the pH explain your prediction?
When dealing with PH buffers, anything you add to the solution can change the PH of the solution. If it was more specific I could tell you exactly why, what are you diluting the buffer with? do you have a PH meter to see the actuality of what your doing? or trying to do? What is your Buffer solution?
Add an acid or a base to the solution to change the pH. Adding an acid will decrease the pH, while adding a base will increase the pH. The amount that the pH increases or decreases is dependent on the strength and concentration of the acid or base. Some common acids include hydrochloric acid (HCl), nitric acid (HNO3), sulfuric acid (H2SO4), and acetic acid (CH3COOH). Some common bases include sodium hydroxide (NaOH), potassium hydroxide (KOH)…
