    One of the buffers that contribute to pH stability in human blood is carbonic acid (H2CO3).

    Carbonic acid is a weak acid that dissociates into a bicarbonate ion (HCO3-) and a hydrogen ion

    (H+). Thus,

    H2CO3 HCO3-+ H+


    If the pH of the blood drops, one would expect

    A) a decrease in the concentration of H2CO3and an increase in the concentration of HCO3-.

    B) the concentration of hydroxide ion (OH-) to increase.

    C) the concentration of bicarbonate ion (HCO3-) to increase.

    D) the HCO3-to act as a base and remove excess H+with the formation ofH2CO3.

    E) the HCO3-to act as an acid and remove excess H+with the formation of H2CO3.



    D) the HCO3-to act as a base and remove excess H+with the formation ofH2CO3

    One of the buffers that contribute to pH stability in human blood is carbonic acid H2CO3.

    Carbonicacid is a weak acid that when placed in an aqueous solution dissociates into a

    bicarbonate ion (HCO3-) and a hydrogen ion (H+). Thus,

    H2CO3 HCO3-+ H+


    If the pH of the blood increases, one would expect

    A) a decrease in the concentration of H2CO3andan increase in the concentration of H2O.

    B) an increase in the concentration of H2CO3and a decrease in the concentration of H2O.

    C) a decrease in the concentration of HCO3-and an increase in the concentration of H2O.

    D) an increase in the concentration of HCO3-and a decrease in the concentration of H2O.

    E) a decrease in the concentration of HCO3-and an increase in the concentration of both H2CO3

    and H2O.

    A) a decrease in the concentration of H2CO3andan increase in the concentration of H2O.
