Calculate [OH-] and pH for the following strong base solution: 10.0 mL of 0.0105 M Ca(OH)2 diluted to 500.0 mL

• Chemistry -

[Ca(OH)2] = 0.0105M; therefore, 10 mL diluted to 500 must have a concn of
0.0105M x (10/500) = ??M
Since there are two OH ions per molecule of Ca(OH)2, (OH^-) must be twice that, then pOH = -log(OH^-).
pH + pOH = pKw = 14; use that to calculate H+.

Thank you so much! I would really appreciate it!
[OH-]= 4.2x10^-4 M
pH=10.6 or 11

• Chemistry -

Yes, that's correct but I wouldn't round it to 11 but keep it as 10.62. (10.62 has two significant figures --besides the 10 which comes from the log part--and you are allowed two--and I would keep 10.62.
