Explain why a buffer made of equal concentrations of HF and F- does not change in pH when a small amount of HCl (a strong acid) is added to the solution. Does the HCl dissociate into ions when it is added to the solution? What do the hydrogen ions react with? Why don’t these hydrogen ions change the pH?
