Problem: (b) What is the pOH of 2.55 M Ba(OH)2? Is the solution neutral, acidic, or basic?

FREE Expert Solution

Recall that strong base completely dissociates in water and that base accepts H+ from acid  (water in this case). The dissociation of Ba(OH)is as follows:


Ba(OH)2(aq) + H2O(l)  Ba2+(aq) + 2 OH(aq)
