Answer:

#pH=13.0#

Explanation:

We work out (i) the #pOH#........

We have #0.1*N# with respect to #HO^-#. This is #0.05*mol*L^-1# with respect to #Ca(OH)_2(aq)#. Agreed?

Now.................

#pOH=-log_10[HO^-]=-log_10(0.1)=-(-1)=+1#.

And we can now (ii) address the #pH#.

Because #pOH+pH=14#, and thus #pH=14-1.00=13.0#.

Is this solution acidic or basic?
