Although the pH of human blood is normally between pH 7.3-7.5, certain situations can take place which bring about "acidosis." Acidosis is defined as an abnormal lowering in the blood pH. If the decrease in pH is severe, the individual may go into a coma or possibly even die.
Calculate the increase in H+ concentration corresponding to a decrease in pH from 7.3 to 6.9.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com December 16, 2022, 10:30 am ad1c9bdddf
Step 1: Calculate the H+ concentration at pH 7.3
pH = -log [H+]
7.3 = -log [H+]
[H+] = 5.0x10^-8 M
Step 2: Calculate ...
This solution explains how to calculate the increase in H+ concentration in a person's blood.
