Problem: Which solution has the highest pH?a. 0.001 M NaOHb. 0.001 M Ba(OH)2c. 0.001 M NH3d. 0.001 M HCle. 0.001 M HClO

FREE Expert Solution

We're being asked to determine the solution that has the highest pH.


Recall the pH scale:

Lower pH (<7) → more acidic → stronger acid

Higher pH (>7) → more basic → stronger base

pH = 7 → neutral


Since all the solutions have the same concentrations, we will identify the strongest base among them:

a. 0.001 M NaOH
