Acid-Base Equilibria
I am unsure of how to calculate

[OH-] and the pH for each of the following strong base solutions:
The pOH is calculated as pOH = - log[OH-]
And pOH + pH = 14

-- 0.082 M KOH
In solution, KOH is a strong base and electrolyte, so
KOH (aq) → K+ (aq) + OH- (aq)
0.82 0.082
Thus, the concentration of ...

Solution Summary

The solution provides examples of calculating the [OH-] and pH of several basic solutions.
