Henderson-Hasselbalch Equation

The Henderson-Hasselbalch equation The pH of an acidic or basic buffer can be calculated by using the Henderson-Hasselbalch equation. The Henderson-Hasselbalch equation can also be......

Mechanism of Buffer Action

Mechanism of buffer action A buffer is a solution containing a weak acid and its conjugate base in similar amounts. The way in which a......

Buffer Solutions

Buffer Solutions In many chemical and biological processes, it is necessary to maintain the pH of the medium fairly at the constant value. Solutions used for......

Uses of Buffer Solutions

Uses of buffer solutions The buffer solution is defined as a solution that resists change in pH upon addition of small quantities of strong acids or......

Titration of a Strong Acid with a Strong Base

Titration of a Strong Acid with a Strong Base In a strong acid-strong base titration, the acid and base will react to form a neutral......

Indicators in Acid-Base Titrations

Indicators in Acid-Base Titrations Indicators, as the name implies, are substances which indicate, generally by their color change, the equivalence point, or end point of......

Common Ion Effect

Common Ion Effect The dissociation of an electrolyte may be depressed by adding another electrolyte having an ion (cation or anion) in common with the......
