pH =

-log_10[H+]

1

pH of plasma

7.35 - 7.45

2

How to convert pH to concentration?

10^ -pH

3

What is the concentration of [H+] in the blood?

40 nmol/L

4

What is the relationship b/t pH and concentration (in terms of H+)

0.01 increase in pH = 1 nmol decrease in [H+]

5

Acid

H+ donor

6

Base

H+ acceptor

7

Conjugate base

When an acid loses it's H+
HA <-> H+ and A-
A- is the conjugate base.

8

Physiological buffers

Weak acids or bases
