FREE Expert Solution

We are being asked to calculate the pH of 100.0 mL of a 0.50 M aqueous NH3 solution mixed with 200.0 mL of 0.25 M aqueous HI.


We will calculate the pH of the solution at the equivalence point using the following steps:

Step 1. Write the chemical equation for the reaction between NH3 and HI.
Step 2. Calculate the initial amounts of NH3 and HI in moles before the reaction happens.
Step 3. Construct an ICF Chart.
Step 4. Calculate the new concentration of the species left in the solution.
Step 5. Calculate pH.


Step 1. Write the chemical equation for the reaction between HF and NaOH.
