Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[pH= \log_{10} [H ^{+}]\] So if we substitute the concentration of H+ in that equation we get the pH around 12 If a solution's pH is 1 5 usually they are acidic solutions 7 a neutral solution 815 it is basic ! Since it's around 12 the solution is basic !

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0There's an easier way though. Look at the H+ concentration it is very low right? If it is an acidic solution the H+ should be more than this right? If it's neutral the H+ concentration should be equal to OH In a basic solution OH concentration is high compared to H+ concentration. Since we can see he concentration of H+ is low it can be considered as a basic solution.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@Rushwr As you said, \[Ph = \log_{10}(H ^{+}) \] so here \[Ph=\log_{10}(10)=1 \] so the solution is heavily acidic Also, a concentration of 10 moles of H+ per liter is extremely high. So high that even some strong acids don't completely dissociate. So the solution is acidic.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@niels5x9 U are wrong there. The given value is \[10^{12}\] So the pH would be 12 . So it's gonna be basic ! :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh well he said 1012 so i thought he meant in the range of 10 to 12
