Example: Adjust pH of buffer solution:
(see other examples:
calculate buffer pH
make pH buffer
This exampe is to adjust pH of CH3COONa/CH3COOH buffer solution by adding NaOH solution.
In main menu Click Popular services>Biotech/chemistry, then click pH buffer calculator.
Then give temperature of the buffer.
Choose initial state as Liquid buffer solution. There are six options of add
chemical. In our case, choose add chemical to convert acid to base bcause
NaOH reacts with CH3COOH and produce CH3COONa.
Give pKa value 4.76. Give consume mole ratio 1 because 1 mole NaOH reacts
with 1 mole acetic acid and produce one mole CH3COONa. Then click Next step
button to reach calculation page.
Figure 1. Set up adjust buffer pH
At calculation page, give initial concentration of buffer acid and buffer base,
and initial buffer volume. These values should be from previous make pH buffer
calculation. Give concentration and volume of NaOH to add. Click calculate
button to obtain pH value, and final concentrations of acid and base.
