Q. Read the passage given below and answer questions 1 to 5 that follows-

Buffer solutions plat an important role in a number of biological as well as industrial process. We can prepare buffer solutions of different pH values by selecting suitable concentrations of a weak acid and its salt with a strong base or a weak base and its salt with a strong acid. There are also many single salts whose solutions act as buffers. The ph of acidic buffers can be calculated using Henderson equation. Likewise a similar equation is used for the calculation of pH of basic buffers.
