Algal Bloom and Changes in pH

Following an algal bloom, the pH of a lake increases from 7.3 to 10. If the pH is due to an increase in OH- ions via the reaction: HCO3 --> OH- + CO2, how many moles of OH- were released to raise the pH to 10?

Solution Summary

This solution shows step-by-step calculations to determine how many moles of OH- were released to raise the pH to 10 from 7.3.
