How do buffer solutions work?

Asked by Topperlearning User | 4th Jun, 2014, 01:23: PM

Expert Answer:

A buffer solution has to contain things which will remove any hydrogen ions or hydroxide ions that you might add to it - otherwise the pH will change. Acidic and alkaline buffer solutions achieve this in different ways.
