10 most difficult mathematics riddles A list of ten (out of 23) mathematics related questions that are the most often answered incorrectly Mathematics quiz Which of the following is true for the solution with the pH=0?The OH − ion concentration is smaller than the H+ ion concentration. In chemistry, pH is a numeric scale used to specify the acidity or alkalinity of an aqueous solution. It is the negative of the logarithm to base 10 of the activity of the hydrogen ion .Traditionally the pH is being defined as: pH = - log10 [H+], where [H+] it is a H+ ions concentration in mol/dm^3 (M). So if pH = 0 this H+ ions concentration is 1 mol/dm^3 and the solution is strongly acidic.very hard 24% the OH − ion concentration is smaller than the H+ ion concentrationthe OH − ion concentration is smaller than the H+ ion concentration24%the OH − ion concentration is greater than the H+ ion concentrationthe OH − ion concentration is greater than the H+ ion concentration19%the OH − ion concentration is equal of the H+ ion concentrationthe OH − ion concentration is equal of the H+ ion concentration28%Such solution doesn't existSuch solution doesn't exist27%Created by: Paweł Kołodziejczyk.
