To answer this question, you need to know that acids react with bases to form salts and water. Since the question refers to equal volumes of each solution, assume liter of each solution is available. Barium hydroxide solution is a strong base (i.e., it is completely ionized in water) and liter of provides mole of ions in solution. When liter of this solution is added to liter of either , or , no reactions occur and the resulting solutions remain basic; that is, the will be greater than in each case. When mole of
The acetate ion produced is a strong base, which hydrolyzes in water to yield a solution containing more
