    When adding strong base to a buffer, we assume the equilibrium value of the hydroxyl ion (OH-) is zero because all hydroxyl ion (OH) react with hydrogen ion (H+) forming water. So there is no hydroxyl ion (OH-) left and values of hydroxyl ion (OH-) is become zero.

    Hydrogen ion is released by weak acid which is present in the buffer solution.
