pH Scale and Range
A buffer resists pH change by accepting H+ OH-.
Acids are on a scale from 1-7, 7 is considered neutral, and 7-14 is a base.
When water ionizes, it releases equal amounts of hydrogen ions (H+) and hydroxide ions (OH-)
Acid releases H+ ions in a solution
Bases releases OH- ions in a solution
Ex: Carbon-12 & Carbon-14
