###### FREE Expert Solution

We’re being asked to calculate the percent ionization of a 0.401 M aqueous solution of hydrazoic acid (HN3).

Recall that the percent ionization is given by:

We know the initial concentration of hydrazoic acid (HN3), 0.401 M. We just need to find the concentration of H+ at equilibrium.

Since hydrazoic acid (HN3) has a low Ka value, it’s a weak acid.

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

The dissociation of HA is as follows:

HN3(aq) + H2O(l)  H3O+(aq) + N3-(aq); Ka = 1.9 × 10–5

Ka was found in books or the internet.
