We’re being asked to calculate the individual ion concentration in a 0.750 M Ba(OH)2 solution.
Let’s first determine what type of base is Ba(OH)2:
• Any Group 2A metal (from Ca2+ to Ba2+) when combined with OH-, H-, O2- or NH2- makes a strong base
• Ba (Group 2A metal) is paired with OH-
• Ba(OH)2 → strong base
Ba(OH)2 is a strong electrolyte. Determine the concentration of each of the individual ions in a 0.750 M Ba(OH)2 solution.
