you are only given the PH and the concentration of the acid. it tells you to name the acid and the base.

A buffer is a special solution that stops massive  changes in  pH levels

Lets take HcL its a binary as a buffer

pH=10+log\0.12.

pH change=pH final-pH initial,

you then calculate the increase or decrease

how do i determine the base concentration and the acid and base names 

/

ph=pKa +log

ph=pKa+log1

ph=pka+0

log1=0

ph=pKa+log{salt} {base}

10=0+ log{0.12/x},let x represent the base 

knowing the acidic and base levels will be easier to identify the names
