For this problem, we are being asked to determine the highest concentration of hydroxide ions
Recall that pH is the negative logarithmic function of hydronium ion concentration
[H+] and [OH-] are related by the equation:
Which solution below has the highest concentration of hydroxide ions?
A. pH = 6.0
B. pH = 7.6
C. pH = 4.5
D. pH = 9.2
E. pH = 12.4
