🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Duim's class at UCD.

Solution: At 0 degrees C, the ion product constant of water is 1.2x10 –15. The pH of pure water at this temperature is:6.887.007.467.56

Problem

At 0 degrees C, the ion product constant of water is 1.2x10 –15. The pH of pure water at this temperature is:

  1. 6.88
  2. 7.00
  3. 7.46
  4. 7.56
Solution

We’re being asked to determine the pH of pure water at 0 ˚C, given a Kw of 1.2 × 10–15.


Recall that Kw is the autoionization constant of water, and is given by:


Kw=H+OH-
