For this problem, we have to calculate the pH when 49.5 mL of 0.335 M NaA is mixed with 30.6 mL of 0.120 M HCl.

  • HF and NaF are conjugate pairs, hence we can use Henderson-Hasselbach equation to calculate the pH 
  • To do so, follow these steps

Step 1. Find the moles of Fand HF

Step 2Calculate the pH using HH equation
