    Solution Preview

    In each buffer you have two components, one acidic, and one basic. The acidic component buffers added bases, and the basic component buffers added acid.

    In the above question you are asked to calculate the basic buffer capacity. In the theory of buffers, your buffer will still exist when you have some amounts (in moles) of each component. Basic buffering means that you are adding base to your ...
