chem 12

Calculate [H3O] an [OH] for a sodium hydroxide solution having a pH of 12.5.

I know this is a strong base, and i got the pH 12.5. But i don't know how to go from there.

  • chem 12 -

    pH = -log(H^+)
    12.5 = 0log.....
    -12.5 = log(H^+).
    Take antilog both sides to arrive at (H^+). Then
    (H^+)(OH^-) = Kw = 1E-14.
    You know (H^+), solve for (OH^-).
