Calculating the pH of a Nitric Acid/Sodium Hydroxide Solution

25.00ml of a 0.200M nitric acid solution is added to 50.00ml of a 0.100 M sodium hydroxide solution. What is the pH of the solution?

Solution Preview

In such an acid-base reaction first we have to check whether they are strong or weak acids or bases. When we check from a table, we can see that both nitric acid HNO3 and NaOH are strong. So we can say that there will be a complete acid-base reaction. ...

Solution Summary

The solution checks for strong or weak acids or bases and writes the reaction continuing to explain the answer to the problem.
