[H+] problem please help
« on: March 06, 2008, 10:16:20 PM »
a solution in which [OH-] is 140 times greater than [H+]:

What is [H+]?

The definition of pH and pOH is, what?  pH = ... ?
Hey, I'm not judging.  I just like to shoot straight.  I'm a man of science.

the question asks what is the concentration of hydronium ions which is pH remember [OH-] is pOH and [H+] is pH

Remember that
pH+pOH=14
or
[H+][OH-]=10-14

Can you do the algebra to solve?

The problem has nothing with pH and pOH directly. This is a simple equation:
[H3O+] x 140 x [H3O+] = 10-14
