# An Acid Solution Of Ph=6 Is Diluted 1000 Times, The pH Of The Final Solution Becomes

Sol:

If an acid solution of pH=6 is diluted 1000 times, then the pH of the final solution becomes 6.99.

Given pH = 6

Therefore, [H^{+}] = 10^{-6}M \)

After dilution:

$$[H^{+}] = \frac{10^{-6}}{1000}$$ $$\Rightarrow 10^{-9} M$$ $$As [H^{+}] from water (H_{2}O)$$ cannot be neglected.

$$Total [H^{+}] = 10^{-9} + 10^{-7}$$ $$\Rightarrow 10^{-7} (10^{-2} + 1)$$ $$\Rightarrow 10^{-7} (1.01)$$ $$pH = – log (1.01 * 10^{-7})$$ $$\Rightarrow 7 – 0.0043$$ $$\Rightarrow 6.9957$$

Hence proved
