MT 75.3 - Determination of
pH values

Page 131
(i): Line 7: Change the last two phrases as follow:
... Immerse the electrode into the liquid and immediately start the stopwatch (Note 7). Record the pH values after 1 and 2 minutes, without stirring during the measurement. If the two pH values differ by more than 0.1 pH units, record and report the pH value 10 minutes after immersing the electrode.

Page 132
Note 7: When using an automatic pH meter, where the measurement stops automatically as soon as the pH changes are less than a pre-set drift value of 0.1 pH units/min, a measurement period of less than 10 min is acceptable and the resulting pH value should be reported.
