🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Klinger's class at LUC.

Solution: 1.0-L of a buffer solution contains 0.800 moles of acid HA (K a = 2.00 x 10 -6 ) and 0.800 moles of its conjugate base, A− . What is the change in pH upon the addition of 0.0500 moles of a strong base to this solution (with no change in volume)? (a) +0.05 (b) +0.03 (c) +0.01 (d) -0.01 (e) -0.05
