Nitric Acid is defined as a stronge acid, ionizing almost completely with water.
- Colorless, liquid state, transparent with a pungent odor.
- Pure Nitric Acid has a very low pH where as Nitric Acid diluted for safe uses in school experiments is between 4-5
How to calc. pH and [H+]
Calculate pH and [H+]
pH = -log10[H+]
[H+] = 10-pH
How to test pH
- use test strips
Real Life example
- Can be used in explosives, fertilizers and the purification and extraction of metals.
- Ammonia Nitrate and Liquid forms
