Given that the self-ionization of water is endothermic, what is the value of pH + pOH at 50 degrees Celcius?


A) > 14 B) 14 C) < 14


Please do not comment unless you are making a serious attempt at the problem


I couldn't think of any simpler way to help without directly giving the answer.


\(H_2O~+~\color{red}{heat}\) <=> \(H^+ + OH^-\) at \(25^o\) C pH + pOH is 14 if you heat it further the reaction goes in the forward direction and more ions are produced \(k_w = [H^+][OH^-]\) \(pK_w = pH + pOH\) more the ions more the \(k_w\) less the \(pK_w\)
