Establish the Ka expression of the dissolution of a weak acid HA and determine the pH using an ICE chart
We will solve this problem through these steps:
Step 1: Write an equation for the dissociation of HA
Step 2: Write an expression for the Ka.
Step 3: Set up an ICE table to calculate the H3O+ ion concentration.
Find the pH of a 0.130 M solution of a weak monoprotic acid having Ka = 1.6×10−5.
