Problem

Calculate the percent dissociation of the acid in the following solution.

a. 0.50 M acetic acid
b. 0.050 M acetic acid
c. 0.0050 M acetic acid
d. Use Le Châtelier’s principle to explain why percent dissociation increases as the concentration of a weak acid decreases.

e. Even though the percent dissociation increases from solutions a to c, the [H  +] decreases. Explain.
