    The Kw of water varies with temperature. Calculate the pH of water at 46⁰C with a Kw = 1.219 x 10-14. Show all calculations leading to an answer. I got this so far : Kw = 1.219x 10^-14 [H+]^2= 1.219 x 10^-14 [H+]= -/(1.219) x

    calculate the ph of a solution by addition of 0.1 mL of 0.5m hcl to 50.0 ml pure water. I'm supposed to use c1v1=c2v2... but I did 0.1/50ml=0.002.... 0.002x0.5.. then -log the answer and got 3 for a ph is it right?

    Prove that log a, log ar, log ar^2 is an a.p. Is the following below correct? Log ar^2 - Log ar= Log ar - Log a hence applying laws of logarithm Log(ar^2/ar) = log(ar/a) Log and log cancels out and then cross-multiply hence a^2r^2
