Question

The pH of milk, black coffee, tomato juice, lemon juice and egg white are 6.8, 5.0, 4.2, 2.2 and 7.8 respectively. Calculate corresponding hydrogen ion concentration in each.

Solution

The hydrogen ion concentration in the given substances can be calculated by using the given relation:

pH = –log [H+]

(i) pH of milk = 6.8

Since, pH = –log [H+]

6.8 = –log [H+]

log [H+] = –6.8

[H+] = anitlog(–6.8)

`= 1.5 xx 10^(-7) M`

(ii) pH of black coffee = 5.0

Since, pH = –log [H+]

5.0 = –log [H+]

log [H+] = –5.0

[H+] = anitlog(–5.0)

`= 10^(-5) M`

(iii) pH of tomato juice = 4.2

Since, pH = –log [H+]

4.2 = –log [H+]

log [H+] = –4.2

[H+] = anitlog(–4.2)

`= 6.31 xx 10^(-5) M`

iv) pH of lemon juice = 2.2

Since, pH = –log [H+]

2.2 = –log [H+]

log [H+] = –2.2

[H+] = anitlog(–2.2)

`= 6.31 xx 10^(-3) M`

(v) pH of egg white = 7.8

Since, pH = –log [H+]

7.8 = –log [H+]

log [H+] = –7.8

[H+] = anitlog(–7.8)

`= 1.58 xx 10^(-8) M`

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
