A buffer solution is an aqueous solution
consisting of a mixture of a weak acid and
its conjugate base, or vice versa. Its pH
changes very little when a small amount of
strong acid or base is added to it.

It is a solution which resists changes in pH when acid or alkali is added to it.

A buffer is a solution that can resist pH change upon the addition of an acidic or basic components. It is able to neutralize small amounts of added acid or base, thus maintaining the pH of the solution relatively stable. This is important for processes and/or reactions which require specific and stable pH ranges. Buffer solutions have a working pH range and capacity which dictate how much acid/base can be neutralized before pH changes, and the amount by which it will change.

A buffer solution is a solution containing both an acid and a base. The solution is made by taking a weak acid and adding its conjugate base (which is formed by removing a proton from the same type of acid) or by combining a weak base with its conjugate acid.

it simply helps in maintaining the pH of a solution
