Suppose you have 1 l of acid solution. With a pH of 2" , you add 1 l of pure water to it, wat happens to the pH of the solution? Explain!

Is it correct if i state: the pH of the acid solution becomes neutral since pure water is neutral??

  • Chemistry -

    No, to make it neutral you would have to add OH ions. Water will dilute it and make it less acidic, but it still will be an acid.
