Thallium(I) hydroxide is a strong base used in the synthesis of some organic compounds. Calculate the pH of a solution containing 2.13 g TlOH per liter.
Convert 2.13 g TlOH to moles. Divide moles by 1 liter to get the molar concentration in moles/liter or "M".
moles/L of TlOH = moles/L of OH- ions (since TlOH is a strong base). Calculate the pOH:
pOH = -log[OH-]
pH = 14 - pOH
i did this problem with 2.48 g and got 1.42 pH for OH- and 12.6 for H+
