Problem: Which weak acid solution has the greatest percent ionization?(a) 0.100 M HC2H3O2(b) 0.500 M HC2H3O2(c) 0.0100 M HC2H3O2

FREE Expert Solution

Recall that the percent ionization is given by:

% ionization=[H3O+][HA]initial×100

Remember that weak acids partially dissociate in water and that acids donate H+ to the base (water in this case).
