As the pH of a system decreases:



the [H+] decreases



the Kw decreases



the [OH-] decreases



all of the above

  • chemistry -

    As the pH decreases the H^+ gets larger.
    Kw is a constant and changes only with temperature.
    If pH gets smaller, H^+ becomes larger and OH becomes smaller.
    Look at (H^+)(OH^-) = Kw.
    If H goes up, OH must go down. If OH goes up, H^+ must go down. Kw doesn't move so H or OH must if the other one moves.

  • chemistry -

    so the answer would be OH- decreases

  • chemistry -

    yes
