Solution: Environmental engineers use alkalinity as a measure of the capacity of carbonate buffering systems in water samples: Alkalinity (mol/L) = [HCO3−] + 2[CO32−] + [OH−] − [H+]Find the alkalinity of a wate

Problem

Environmental engineers use alkalinity as a measure of the capacity of carbonate buffering systems in water samples: 

Alkalinity (mol/L) = [HCO3] + 2[CO32−] + [OH] − [H+]

Find the alkalinity of a water sample that has a pH of 9.5, 26.0 mg/L CO 32−, and 65.0 mg/L HCO3.
