Homework Help: pH dilution
« on: December 01, 2004, 09:05:55 PM »
What is the pH of the solution formed by diluting 25.0 mL of 0.40 M NaOH to a final volume of 2.00 L?

You have to attempt the problem.
Most Common Suggestions I Make on the Forums.
1. Start by writing a balanced chemical equation.
2. Don't confuse thermodynamic stability with chemical reactivity.
3. Forum Supports LaTex

Calculate a new concentration and take into account NaOH is a strong base.

if 0.4M NaOH means the quantity of matter,then C(hydroxyl)=0.4/2=0.2Mol/L
Ph=14-POH=14+lg0.2=13.3010

0.4M NaOH is diluted from 0.025L to 2L.

Concentration of diluted NaOH = 0.4 / (2/0.025) = 5 x 10-3

this should help you out.
