Problem: Find the pH of a 0.205 M HClO2(aq) solution. For HClO2, Ka =0.011.

FREE Expert Solution

We’re being asked to calculate the pH of a 0.205 M HClO2


HC3H5O2 is a weak acid that will further react in water to form H3O+

HClO2 (aq) + H2O (l) → H3O+ (aq) + ClO2- (aq)


We can use the H3O+ produced to find the pH
