What determines the greatest buffer capacity when looking at solutions? The professor said he would have a list of solutions on the test and we choose the one with the best buffer capacity

  • Chemistry -

    The HH equation is
    pH = pKa + log (base)/(acid)
    Choose the one with (base)/(acid) closest to 1.0
