Establish the related equations for pH and [OH-] then calculate the concentration of OH- using the provided pH
The pH and pOH of a compound determine its acidity and basicity.
▪ pOH stands for the negative logarithmic function of hydroxide concentration
▪ can be calculated using the following equation:
