Hi !

Could you please help me to see through this problem.

*I know it's asking me to find the hydrogen ion concentration in a bleach sample.

*If the pH meter reads 9.55..this suggest to me this is a base. Maybe,I can use the equation:

pOH = -log (OH^-)

= -log (9.55)

= 0.980.

That's the answer I get.

If I plug that value into the equation: pH + pOH = 14

pH + 0.980 = 14

=13.0

I might have gone the wrong way. Please help me.

Thank You.

I'm really not sure where to go with this problem. I missing something;I hope you can help me.
