Problem Details

The graphs below labeled (a) and (b) show the titration curves for two equal-volume samples of monoprotic acids, one weak and one strong. Both titrations were carried out with the same concentration of strong base.

What is the approximate pH at the equivalence point of (b) curve?
A graph labeled (b) of pH versus Volume of base added (mL). At 0 mL of base the pH starts out at about 1 then steadily increases as base is added. At about 50 mL of base added the graph is almost vertical from a pH of about 3 to 11. As more base is added past 50 mL the pH goes back to a steady increase up to 100 mL where the pH is about 12.
