Solution: Which solution has the higher pH, a 0.001 M solution of NaOH or a 0.001 M solution of Ba(OH)2?

Solution: Which solution has the higher pH, a 0.001 M solution of NaOH or a 0.001 M solution of Ba(OH)2?

Problem

Which solution has the higher pH, a 0.001 M solution of NaOH or a 0.001 M solution of Ba(OH)2?

Solution

We are asked to determine which solution has a higher pH


Recall that both NaOH and Ba(OH)2 are strong bases since they hydroxides of group 1A (Na+) and group 2A (Ba2+) ions. Strong bases completely dissociate in water.
