Variation of ph value of water with temperature

Variation of ph value of water with temperature

Dear sir,
      I would like to know the variation in ph value of water with temperature.
Thanks & Best Regads

RE: Variation of ph value of water with temperature

Don't have a graph handy, but the neutral point is ~5.5 at 300 deg C, IIRC.

RE: Variation of ph value of water with temperature

The dissociation constant for water increases with T (Log KW becomes less negative) according to

   Log KW = -4470.99/T + 6.0875 - 0.01706 T

where T is degrees K, and pH = -0.5 x Log KW.
For 573 K, this equation gives pH = -5.7 cf. the ~5.5 value given by Metalguy.
