What is a buffer solution? How to make a buffer solution?

Buffer solution is a system that minimises the change in pH when a small amount of acid or base is added. There are two types of buffer solutions- alkaline buffer solution and acidic buffer solution. The pH of alkaline buffer solution is always greater than 7, whereas the pH of acidic buffer solution is always smaller than 7.In order to make alkaline buffer solution, weak base and its salt (chloride) must be mixed together, for example, ammonia and ammonium chloride. To prepare acidic buffer solution, weak acid and its salt must be mixed. For example, ethanoic acid and sodium ethanoate. Buffer solution is a system that minimises the change in pH when a small amount of acid or base is added.

What is a formula of Potassium Sulfate?

First, look at the Periodic Table. Potassium is in group 1 so has a +1 charge, Li+Sulphates always have a -2 charge, SO4 2-Now combine two ions together so we can get a neutral compound. We have +1 charge on Li ion and -2 charge on SO4 ion. Therefore, we need two Li+ ions for one SO4 2-Now the charges cancel out and we have a neutral salt Li2SO4 First, look at the Periodic Table.
