I have just performed a lab and I was wondering if you can help me. i first made a 15mL buffer solution containing 15mL of 0.1mol/L acetic acid and 0.1 g of sodium acetate. I had five test tubes. In tube A there was 5mL of distilled water and 5mL of 0.1 mol/L HCl. In tube B there was 5 mL of the buffer and 5mL of the HCl. Nothing but the buffer was in tube C (the control). In tube D there was the 5mL of buffer and 5mL of 0.1mol/L NaOH. In tube E there was 5mL of distilled water and 5mL of NaOH. For the final pH of the tubes i got A=1, B=2, C=4, d=13, E=14. Did the buffer work in tube B because the change in pH was smaller than the change in tube D?
Re: Which solution will the buffer work in?
