acid adde d to form NaOH or ions concentratio Jase or the Se or the acid added Dack the Dack the OH s or H0* ions. Thus, the H0+ Jn chang Changes and ence the pH of the solution changes. Buffer Action of Acidic Buffer. For example, let us consider the buffer action of the acidic butter containing CH,COOH and CH COONa. Acetic acid dissociates to a small extent whereas sodium acetate 1s almost completely dissociated in the aqueous solution as follows: CH,COOH + H,0 CH,COO+ H,0* CH,COONa CH,CO0+ +Nat (i) .(ii) By 'common ion effect', the ionization of CH,COOH is further suppressed. Thus, in the solution, there are excess of acetate (CH,CO0) ions and a small amount of H0* ions. When a few drops of an acid are added to the above mixture solution, the H30* ions given by the acid combine with the CH COO ions to form weakly ionized molecules of CH COOH. CH,COO + H,0 CHCOOH+ H,O Thus, the H0t ion concentration and hence the pH of the solution remains almost constant. Similarly, when a few drops of a base are added, the OH ions given by the base combine with the H3O ions already present to form weakly ionized molecules of H,O. H0 OH 2H,0 + [From ()] [Given by the base] As the H,0* ions are consumed, the equilibrium () shifts towards right (according to Le Chatelier's principle). Thus, more of CH,COOH dissociates to make up the loss of H,0 ions. Hence, the H,0t ion COncentration or the pH of the solution does not change. Buffer Action of Basic Buffer.

    The pH of the solution does not rise significantly. It almost remain constant. Buffers are solutions that resist changes in pH, upon addition of small amounts of acid or base.  ...
