Prevents any major change in your pH
  • Photon336
pH = pKA + log[conjugate base/acid] I'm not too sure if I remember correctly a buffer is made of a weak acid and its salt.
  • Photon336
It must keep the pH relatively constant so I think it has to neutralize anything added so it must react with either OH- or H+
