Question:

Show using the correct chemical reactions how increased levels of carbon dioxide can cause a pH decrease within the worlds oceans?

Joshua P.
Answer:

The pH decrease within the worlds oceans is called ocean acidification. CO(2) + H(2)O -->H(2)CO(3) This is more commonly known as carbonic acid and breaks down to increase acidity. H(2)CO(3) --> HCO(3)(-) + H(+) The positive hydrogen atom decreases the pH. This happens once more. HCO(3)(-) --> CO(3)(-2) + H(+) Ocean acidification is a growing problem, in the last 100 years the pH has decreased by 0.1 due to the logarithmic behavior of the pH scale this is indicative of a 30% acidity increase.
