Solution: From the equilibrium concentration given, calculate K a for the weak acid and K b for the weak base.(a) CH3CO2H: [H3 O+] = 1.34 × 10 −3 M;         [CH 3 CO2 −]         = 1.34 × 10  −3 M;         [CH 3

Problem

From the equilibrium concentration given, calculate K a for the weak acid and K b for the weak base.

(a) CH3CO2H: [H3 O+] = 1.34 × 10 −3 M; 

        [CH 3 CO2 ]         = 1.34 × 10  −3 M;
         [CH 3CO2H]         = 9.866 × 10  −2 M;
