Best Answer

Please clarify the units of concentration of carbonate and bicarbonate. "mgl" is not a unit of concentration (it's not a unit of anything to my knowledge. To answer this question, you need the concentration of both ions. So either provide the amount of both ions AND the amount of water, or just specify the concentration (in unit of molarity, or moles per liter preferably).

Difference between phenolphthalein alkalinity and and total alkalinity?

phenolphthalein alkalinity is due to hydroxide n carbonate salts in water...nd total alkalinity is mainly due to bicarbonate salts in water..


What does alkalinty mean?

You mean alkalinity? Alkalinity measures the ability of a solution to neutralize acids to the equivalence point of carbonate or bicarbonate. The alkalinity is equal to the stoichiometric sum of the bases in solution.


What does the mean of m alkalinity and p alkalinity water?

1. M-Alkalinity (also known as Total Alkalinity) measures the amount of carbonate, bicarbonate and hydroxide present in terms of "ppm as calcium carbonate". ( M-Alkalinity measurement is based on a sulphuric acid titration using a Methyl orange indicator that goes from yellow at a pH of 4.5 to orange at pH of 4.4 at the endpoint.) 2. P-Alkalinity measures the amount of carbonate and hydroxyl alkalinity present in terms of "ppm as calcium carbonate". P-alkalinity is measured down to a pH of 8.3. The M-alkalinity is measured down to a pH of 4.3.


What is total alkalinity?

Alkalinity of water is its acid-neutralizing capacity. It is the sum of all titratable bases. Because the alkalinity of many surface water is primarily a function of carbonate, bicarbonate and hydroxide content, it is taken as an indication of the concentration of these constituent.


How do you raise pH without raising alkalinity?

You can raise pH only by using sodium carbonate which is mostly sold as pH plus. Don't use bicarbonate which will raise pH but also raises the alkalinity.


Is CO3 carbonate or bicarbonate?

CO32- is carbonate; bicarbonate is the archaic term for hydrogen carbonate, HCO3-.


What are ingredients of fruit salt?

"Fruit salt" is an antacid containing sodium bicarbonate, sodium carbonate and citric acid.


What does the mean of m alkalinity and p alkalinity in boiler water?

1. M-Alkalinity (also known as Total Alkalinity) measures the amount of carbonate, bicarbonate and hydroxide present in terms of "ppm as calcium carbonate". ( M-Alkalinity measurement is based on a sulphuric acid titration using a Methyl orange indicator that goes from yellow at a pH of 4.5 to orange at pH of 4.4 at the endpoint.) 2.

The M-alkalinity is measured down to a pH of 4.3.


What are the differences between carbonate and bicarbonate?

Carbonate is the CO₃²⁻ ion; bicarbonate is the HCO₃⁻ ion, also called the β€œhydrogen carbonate” ion. Thus sodium carbonate is Naβ‚‚CO₃ and sodium bicarbonate is NaHCO₃.


What is the pH range for carbonate bicarbonate buffer?

The pH range for carbonate-bicarbonate buffer is 9,2.


Is sodium carbonate the same as sodium bicarbonate?

No. Sodium carbonate is Na2CO3. Sodium bicarbonate is NaHCO3. Sodium carbonate is a stronger base.
