    Acid-Base Equilibria for Deuterium Oxide

    This content was COPIED from BrainMass.com - View the original, and get the already-completed solution here!

    Hey there. I am having trouble with this question.

    Deuterium oxide (D2O, where D is deuterium, the hydrogen-2 isotope) has an ion-product constant, Kw, of 8.9 x 10^-16 at 20 *C (degrees Celsius). Calculate [D+] and [OD-] for pure (neutral) D2O at this temperature.

    Could you please show the work. And no power points please.

    Thanks in advance!
