What is buffer solution?explain
A buffer solution is water mixed with a chemical to give it special properties in regards to pH (acidity). The chemical, known as a buffer agent, resists pH changes when exposed to acids and bases when properly mixed in a solution. This property makes it extremely useful in protecting sensitive equipment, dealing with chemical accidents, and even in balancing the internal processes of living things. A buffer agent’s acid form (HA) is mixed with its conjugate base (A-) in water to make the solution. Once a balance exists between HA and A-, any other acids or bases added will be neutralized when they turn a portion of the buffer agent into either the HA or A- form. The change in the buffer agent initially causes little change in the solution’s pH. As the proportion of the agent’s HA and A- changes due to the addition of other acids and bases, the buffering capacity of the solution decreases. Eventually, a buffer agent can be used up to the point where it can no longer significantly resist pH changes, meaning it is no longer useful for this purpose.

Thank you for your assistance. I received a 100% on my assignment. I was a little nervous about using this site, the reviews were not good, but I have to admit, I took a chance and I am so glad that I did. Math/Economics is not my specialty, I'm so glad that I came across this site. This is a true review. I will be using this site again. Fingers crossed that I continue to receive 100% on my assignments!
