Solution: Peptide decomposition is one of the key processes of digestion, where a peptide bond is broken into an acid group and an amine group. We can describe this reaction as follows:Peptide(aq) + H2O(l) ⇌ ac

Problem

Peptide decomposition is one of the key processes of digestion, where a peptide bond is broken into an acid group and an amine group. We can describe this reaction as follows:

Peptide(aq) + H2O(l) ⇌ acid group(aq) + amine group(aq)

If we place 1.0 mole of peptide into 1.0 L water, what will be the equilibrium concentrations of all species in this reaction? Assume the K value for this reaction is 3.1 x 10 -5.
