As the hydrogen ion concentration of an aqueous solution increases, the hydroxide ion concentration of this solution will
remain the same
Correct Answer Number: 1
Explanation: (OH-) multiplied by (H3O+) is a constant number equal to 1 x 10-14 for aqueous solutions. In other words, (A) (B) = -14. Substituting numbers, (-7) (2) = -14.
But if 7 is increased to 14, 2 must decrease to -1 to keep the answer -14. (14) (-1) =-14.
If (H3O+) increases, (OH-) must decrease.
