Is this true or false?:A buffer can be destroyed by adding too much strong acid.
I thought that a buffer can be destroyed by adding too much weak acid, but I'm not sure...

  • APChem -

    Yes, it's true. Too much strong acid OR too much strong base will exceed the buffering capacity of the solution.

  • APChem -

    thank you!
