Consider the following buffer equilibrium:
HF (high concentration) + H2O <--> H3O+ (low concentration) + F- ( high concentration)
Using Le Chatelier's Principle, explain what happens to the pH of the buffer solution when a small amount of NaOH is added.

Wouldn't OH- react with HF to form water? But they're both on the reactants side.
