Hi Dr. Topf
First of all, apologies for sending this via email but I do not have a Twitter account (I know, its the 21st century, who doesn’t?).
I had a quick question regarding a practice problem I was doing. Rather than summarize the question for you, I included a screenshot so that you have the primary source with the explanation provided. Below, I also included my explanation for my reasoning for choosing that option. Basically, I am confused as to why the bicarb would be decreased in this scenario.
