Solutions of Acids and Bases

This page let's you practice the fundamental calculation in acid/base systems: determining the pH of the solution. When you press "New Problem," the name of a chemical species will appear in the first cell and a concentration in the second cell. Calculate the pH of the solution and press "Check Answer". Results appear in the second table. In order to use this page, you need a table of acids and bases and their K values. If the compound which appears in the first cell is not in your table, press "New Problem" to get a new compound. Remember that the species can be an acid, a base or be neutral.
