Description rewording conclusion and discussion this one is very short Discussion The goals of this lab were successfully reached. It was discovered that the water in the lake wasn’t as it should be because the acidic rain of a power plant nearby polluted the water greatly. This vast change in pH was resulting in a terrible effect on the life of the organisms in the lake. To fix this major issue, a base was added to the river, and when the acid and base have a reaction a salt was created, this was the point of neutralization. This process occurred until all of the hydroxide and hydronium ions were used up. The point of this lab was to teach the performers of the lab how to calculate the pH of weak bases and weak acids, portray the way weak acids and bases react, organize the strengths of acids and bases, concoct different types of salts through the process of neutralization, and learn about the acid dissociation constant and pKa, the log of Ka. After measuring various testers of control rain eaters, the average of all of the pH’s was 5.6. 5.6 is close to 7, which is neutral, but it is slightly acidic. Carbonic acid was what was formed by the content of the lake. The weak acids that were entering the lake and polluting it were only partially dissociating, which formed a mixture of weak acids and ion molecules at equilibrium. This value was represented by K
