Determing pH of Strong and Weak Acids and Bases (Part II)

Strong acids and strong bases are those compounds that completely dissociate in solution. That means none of the reactants are left over at the end of the reaction and finding the pH of a solution that contains a strong acid or strong base becomes a simple case of plugging in the hydrogen ion or hydroxide ion into our log equation. However, if we are dealing with weak acids or weak bases, things get a little bit more complicated when it comes to solving for the pH at equilibrium. This is because weak acids and weak bases do not completely dissociate in solution. In fact, for weak acids and weak bases, the equilibrium lies far to the left side of the reaction.
