It has to do with sig fig. Froom what i know, when performing log in an equation, only the numbers are the decimal point are counted as sig figs. So if i have 0.1 M of acid, to find the ph, it would be : -log(0.1) = 1; since sig figs have to be AFTER the decimal point, is the correct answer 1.0?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Also, if NaOH were added to an acetic acid solution, will the concentration of the hydrogen ion increase or decrease? and WHy?
