Two indices addressing buffer solution are differentiated, which are used to gauge punctual and durative buffer function, respectively. Buffer strength β and buffer capacity α are accordingly suggested for the names of the indices (their corresponding mathematic expressions are differential formula and integral formula, respectively). The feasibility of introducing differential formula into calculation of durative capacity in the textbooks is intensively discussed, and the applicable conditions
