# Which type of solution is one with a pH 8?

Dec 26, 2017

Alkaline (basic)

#### Explanation:

Acid solutions range from pH $\le 7$.

Neutral solutions are a pH of $7$.

Alkaline solutions range from pH $\ge 7$

Note:

pH can also be 0, negative, and go above 14 if the hydrogen ion concentration satisfies the pH equation (pH = $- \log \left[{H}^{+}\right]$) .

$\textcolor{g r e e n}{\text{Basic}}$

#### Explanation:

Remember this
solution with
$p H > 7$ is $\textcolor{\in \mathrm{di} g o}{\text{basic}}$
$p H < 7$ is $\textcolor{\in \mathrm{di} g o}{\text{acidic}}$
$p H = 7$ is $\textcolor{\in \mathrm{di} g o}{\text{neutral}}$
All at temperature slightly less than color(red)(25°C)

So, the given solution with $p H = 8$ is basic according to the information mentioned above.

Know why i mentioned temperature also ?
consider a glass of water its $p H = 7$, when you heat it , ph begins to lower down , this doesn't mean that water becomes acidic but it means that k equilibrium has shifted , in simple words the number of both cations and anions rose .
