pH = 0I believe that there can't be any acid with its pH exactly equal to zero. It would mean the Hydrogen Activity to be ONE. But since I do not know what the definition of Hydrogen Activity is exactly. 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: pH = 0Hi Agnishom; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #3 20120825 18:20:35
Re: pH = 0So is it really really possible, 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: pH = 0Yes, I only thought a ph of 1 was possible. There are also super acids that are stronger than the big 3 ( HCl, HNO3, H2SO4). In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #5 20120825 18:55:48
Re: pH = 0But pH of HCl is 0, how can any acid be stronger? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: pH = 0Hi; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #7 20120825 22:20:13
Re: pH = 0Either it is difficult to understand or I cannot pay enough concentration 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: pH = 0It is very difficult. Seems there are now a couple of acids that are a million times stronger than H2SO4. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #9 20120826 04:06:31
Re: pH = 0The strongest known superacid is fluoroantimonic acid which is 2 milliard times stronger than the 100% sulfuric acid.

Re: pH = 0So chemistry is quite dynamic 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: pH = 0Well, I'm not sure what you mean by dynamic. Her lab still has the marks from when an experiment went a bit too violently and splatted all over the ceiling. Her class, of course, thought it was GREAT! You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #13 20120828 23:17:00
Re: pH = 0What is the pH of boiling water?? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: pH = 0Just got home from a trip.

Re: pH = 0Actually, nevermind, I found it. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Superbase The limit operator is just an excuse for doing something you know you can't. “It's the subject that nobody knows anything about that we can all talk about!” ― Richard Feynman “Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most.” ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Crime and Punishment
