Problem

Drinking water is often disinfected with Cl 2, which hydrolyzes to form HClO, a weak acid but powerful disinfectant:

           Cl 2(aq) + 2H2O(l) ⟶ HClO(aq) + H3O+(aq) + Cl(aq)

The fraction of HClO in solution is defined as 

(a) What is the fraction of HClO at pH 7.00 (K a of HClO = 2.9×10 −8)?
