Solution: The pH values of five solutions are given below. Which is the most alkaline?a. pH = 4.5b. pH = 13.0c. pH = 0.0d. pH = 1.0e. pH = 7.0

Solution: The pH values of five solutions are given below. Which is the most alkaline?a. pH = 4.5b. pH = 13.0c. pH = 0.0d. pH = 1.0e. pH = 7.0

Problem

The pH values of five solutions are given below. Which is the most alkaline?

a. pH = 4.5

b. pH = 13.0

c. pH = 0.0

d. pH = 1.0

e. pH = 7.0

Solution

Recall: A solution with a pH less than 7 is classified as acidic; the lower the pH, the more acidic a solution is. On the other hand, a solution with a pH greater than 7 is classified as basic or alkaline; the higher the pH, the more basic or alkaline a solution is.
