Strong base-strong acid neutralization reaction:
salt of conj. base conj. acid
At the equivalence point of a strong base-strong acid titration:
**both get used up
strong base + strong acid → neutral salt + H2O → pH = 7
Do all titrations of a strong base with a strong add have the same PH at the equivalence point?
a) No, it depends on the concentrations of the acid and base that are mixed together.
b) No, it depends on what the conjugate base and conjugate acid are after the neutralization is complete.
c) Yes, all strong base-strong acid titrations end with the same PH because the conjugate acid and conjugate base are neutral.
d) Yes, all strong base-strong acid titrations end with the same PH because there is only water left in the beaker once neutralization is complete.
