What is the concentration of H+ and OH- in 0.035 M Ca(OH)2 ?

Expert Answers

An illustration of the letter 'A' in a speech bubbles

For each Ca(OH)2 there are two OH ions.

Therefore the concentration of OH will be 0.070 M

To get the H concentration we use

[OH][H] =  10^-14

[H] = 10^-14/0.070  = 1.43 X 10^-13 M
