strong acid pH dilutionWatch
but that is a strong acid
weak acids are considered 4-6
For example, if I did -log(0.1) I'd get 1, if I did -log(0.01) I'd get 2, and so on... For each time the number decreases by a factor of 10, the logarithm increases by 1.
It is diluted by a factor of 100.
It's pH is now 3.4
Is it because it is a weak acid and as it gets diluted by a factor of 10, it goes up by 0.5 then again by 0.5 when diluted by another factor of 10?
I know we've not met
But are you in top set?
Decreasing [HA] by a factor or 100x leads to a decrease in [H+] of 10x and hence an increase of pH of 1.
Or am I missing something?
Initially the OP was asking about strong acids. Weak acids dilution factor needs to be rooted before logging.
