We have to determine the percent ionization of a 9.00×10-2 M hypochlorous acid (HOCl) solution.
We will solve this problem through these steps:
Step 1: Write an equation for the dissociation of HOCl.
Step 2: Write an expression for the Ka.
Determine the pH of 9.00×10−2 M hypochlorous acid solution. Ka = 2.9x10-8
