We are asked to explain why the pH at the equivalence point of a weak acid is above 7.00.
Recall that the equivalence point is the point in a chemical reaction at which chemically equivalent quantities of acid and base have been mixed.
The pH at the equivalence point is above 7.00 for the weak acid titration. Describe the reasons why this statement is true.
