Answer to Question #42842 in Inorganic Chemistry for ankita
(B) dissociation of water increases
(C) thermal energy is acidic in nature
(D) silicate ions of glass get dissolved
Kw = [H+][OH-] = 51*10-14
[H+] = [OH-], => Kw = [H+]2
[H+] = sqrt(Kw) = 7.16*10-7 mol/l
pH = -lg [H+] = 6.14
We can see that the increase in temperature causes lowering in pH value due to rise in water autoionization constant.
The correct option is (B).
