What are Buffers?
This post will go through buffers for QCE Chemistry.
3.1.6 – Acid-Base Indicators
- Appreciate that buffers are solutions that are conjugate in nature and resist a
change in pH when a small amount of an acid or base is added;
Le Châtelier’s principle can be applied to predict how buffer solutions
respond to the addition of hydrogen ions and hydroxide ions.
Buffers are solutions that are able to maintain pH due to a special equilibrium between acid and conjugate base or base and conjugate acids.
This video will go through buffers and the effects of pH on buffers in a little more detail.
This video goes through buffers as well.
