Buffers

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

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.
