How do I work out how many times more acidic a ph value of 6.8 is compared to 8.6? For example.
Ps I'm not au fait with the formula shortcuts and they don't display on my iPhone so if this can be avoided It would be much appreciated.
This discussion may help:
Thanks with this link I calculated that the example difference is 6.8 is around 64x more acidic than 8.6. Can anyone confirm if this is correct? Or if I'm talking baloney.
Concentration of H+ is about 63 times higher at pH 6.8 than it is at pH 8.6, that's correct. Whether the solution is 63 times more acidic depends on how you define "acidity".
