In this two lesson series, you'll learn about pH and buggers. We'll start with a discussion of strong/weak acids and pH and a few problems involving pH of strong acids. Then, we'll look at problems that ask us to determine the pH of weak acid solutions using a somewhat simplified technique. The concept of buffers is also discussed, and applications to the human body are noted.

In addition to the included video lessons, with the purchase of this series, you will also get access to lesson-specific note guides that can be viewed and downloaded once this series is purchased. These lessons are part of a full course, Fundamentals of Chemistry that is available through the series listed above or in DVD format from the Chemistry Professor
