What factors determine pH of buffering?
June 14, 2010 12:01PM
If a strong acid is mixed with a weak base, pH=pKa+/-1 in the buffer region.
If a strong base is mixed with a weak acid pOH= pKb +/-1 ( pH=(14 - pKb)+/-1) in the buffer region
[Remember: For one conjugated pair of weak acid (a = HB) AND its weak base (b = B-):
pKa + pKb = 14.0
pH + pOH = 14.0
