a. 193 mL
b. 91 mL
c. 909 mL
d. 807 mL
Concept #2: Buffer Solution
Practice: Which of the following compounds would make for the best buffer at pH 8?
Concept #3: Buffer Solution
Practice: MOPS (pKa =7.2) is a weak acid & acts as a buffer. Calculate the ratio of its basic/acidic species at pH = 6.0.
