"How to raise pH of acid using DI water"





January 6, 2010

Can you please tell me how should I increase the pH of an acid (specifically nitric or acetic acid) to about 3-4 using DI.

For acetic acid prepare a 0.00010 M solution. This will give a pH of 4.47. For Nitric acid prepare a 0.0001 M solution for a solution with a pH of 4.

To find out how to calculate these values just research how to determine the pH of strong acids (which is very simple) and how to get the pH of weak acids (which is a little bit more difficult)
