We’re being asked to calculate the pH of a 0.62 M NH4NO3 solution.
• NH4NO3 is an ionic compound that dissociates into ions when in a solution.
Recall: All nitrates (NO3-) are soluble
• The dissociation of NH4NO3 is given by the equation:
NH4NO3 → NH4+(aq) + NO3-(aq)
Determine the pH of a 0.62 M NH 4NO3 solution at 25°Celsius. The Kb for NH3 is 1.76 x 10-5
