We are asked to calculate the pH at the half equivalence point.
We can use the Henderson Hasslebalch equation to calculate the pOH of a titrated base:
We then can use the equation below to calculate the pH:
What is the pH at the half-equivalence point in the titration of a weak base with a strong acid? The pKb of the weak base is 8.75.
